© D. Wadewitz

The two-console mechanical organ with 34 specifications, built originally by Urban Kreutzbach (1796-1868) in 1848-1843, underwent a large conversation in 1891, which was carried out by Richard Kreutzbach. II/29. In this process, a new console was built and the tracker action was swapped for a pneumatic action. The key range was expanded to C -f"' and the pedal range to C -d'. In conjunction, the installed crescendo pedal was dismantled in 1952. In 1928, the organ was once again rearranged and received an electric blower. In 1989, general maintenance work was undertaken by the company Orgelbau Hermann Eule of Bautzen.
