Kreutzbach-Organ in the St. Lawrence Church in Markranstädt

Short facts

Richard Kreutzbach built the organ in 1886 with a pneumatic key stop action.

Richard Kreutzbach (1839 - 1903), son and co-worker of the company's founder Urban Kreutzbach (1796 - 1868) built the organ with a pneumatic action in 1886. With two manuals and pedals, the organ originally had 23 specifications.
Playing aids: Pedal coupler from the 1st manual manual II to manual I coupler, swell pedal, fixed combinations: Piano, Mezzoforte and Fortissimo stops.
The 1925 and 1958-1963 reconstructions and specification changes were led by the company Mitteldeutscher Orgelbau A.Voigt GmbH of Bad Liebenwerda in 2006. In association with this, the specification of the main organ was extended with the addition of a Trompete 8'. II/24
