Silbermann Organ at St. George's Church Rötha

Short facts

Three days after the consecration of the organ in St. George's Church, Baron von Friesen commissioned Silbermann to build a new organ for St. Mary's Church.

As early as in 1721, Gottfried Silbermann had already built a two-console organ in St. George's church in Rötha. Three days after the organ's consecration, Baron von Friesen awarded Silbermann the contract to build a new organ for the St. Marien Church. Though originally contracted as an organ without an independent pedal stop, and with only 9 stops, Silbermann extended the specification stop list to include Sub-bass 16' and a Terz 1 3/5' too. The consecration took place as early as in 1722. I/11 In 1942, as a result of heavy structural damage to the church, the organ was removed from the church, and stored in St. George's church. The organ has been back in the renovated St. Marien Church since 1958. In 2005, a complete restoration was undertaken by the Organ Manufacturing Company, Ekkehard Groß.
