Eule Organ in the Frauenkirche in Grimma

Short facts

The Bautzen Organ Manufacturing Company, which, to this day, continues to manufacture instruments, fundamentally converted the organ in Grimma in 1928.

Hermann Eule (1846 - 1929), founded the still successful organ manufacturing company in Bautzen in 1872. In 1928, the Eule company fundamentally converted the organ, which was built by the Jehmlich Company of Dresden for the Grimma Frauenkirche with 25 stops in 1890. With a pneumatic action and purse chest, the organ is listed as Opus 167 in the production directory of the Eule Company. By "purse chests", organ builders mean a particular type of pneumatic windchest system. In 2005, the expression pedal around the Oboe 8' stop was expanded using the stop from the poorly preserved Eule organ from the Maria and Marha Church in Bautzen. II/30 The organ can still be heard in all its impressive glory at church services and concerts.
