Queen of the instruments from the 18th century

Schmidt Organ in the Klinga Village Church
© D. Wadewitz

Christian Schmidt (1685 - after 1748) is listed as an Organ Manufacturer in Taucha, near Leipzig. He presumably received his training from his father, Andreas Schmidt (? - 1725). The contract for manufacturing the Klinga organ was concluded on 2 August 1743. I/12 Although it was modified in the 19th century, this organ remains an important counter piece to the style of organ coined by Gottfried Silbermann in Saxony. A dedicated conservation trust made it their task to reverse the partially necessary repairs and modifications, and to reconstruct the organ as authentically as possible when the church was closed.
