Baroque church with epitaphs of the Von Ponickau Family

Alfred Schmeisser (1878 - 1957), the 3rd generation of the company founder Wilhelm Schmeisser (1817 - 1882) working in Rochlitz, built the organ in 1905 with a pneumatic key and stop action. II /18 Expanded to Sifflöte 1' on the second keyboard, this organ documents an early example of the era of the Organ reform movement. After the foundation stone for the reconstruction of the St. Johannes Church was laid in 1682, the ordination of the church and the first organ from Christoph Donat of Leipzig took place in 1686. In 1770 the organ was rebuilt by Johann Gottlieb Mauer from Altenburg. The generously arranged second western gallery indicates the preservation of sophisticated church music.
