The new organ in Dypvåg (2019) is built in a North German Baroque style, suitable for 17th and 18th century music. The compact two-manual organ is inspired by the Schnitger organ in Dedesdorf. Due to architectural limitations, the pipework of both manuals is placed on one windchest in a row (twin drawer). The organ is classically made, with a diversity of colors and characters and a natural, direct touch. This gives the organist maximum control over the sound and the speaking of the pipes.
Organist Hans van der Meijden plays works of Bach, Buxtehude, Goudimel, Böhm and Tunder. “This organ is a treasure that must be played by skillful hands. Its specific style and very limited size require the organist to be creative in his or her registrations and sensitive to explore the beauty it contains. But when played with this care, the instrument will reward the organist and the congregation with a sound quality that touches the heart.”

The organ in the Sint Nicolaaskerk in Sint-Niklaas is inspired by the North German Baroque and built in 2 phases. In 1997 was the delivery of the main work and the organ case with complete front by the Belgian organ builder Draps. In 2007 Flentrop completed the organ with the other works; windchests, mechanisms and pipes for the positive and upper manuals and pedal. Improvements were made to the main work in 2009/2010. In 2013 the too thin front pipes from the first phase were renewed.
Organist and organbuilder Yu Nagayama plays works of Buxtehude, J.S. Bach, W.F. Bach en Bruhns. "On the CD we hear diverse facets of the master-apprentice connection. In some cases this involves an almost identical type of composition, in others, pratice materials or an audition piece. Often we recognise the sound of the master in his students compositions. The apprentice could have taken a totally different approach; however, he opts to remain true to his spiritual father."

In 2013, Flentrop completed the reconstruction of the Reincken organ in the Katharin Church in Hamburg. The original organ was almost completely lost in 1943. On the basis of leftover, abandoned pipe work and a profound organ-archaeological research, Flentrop managed to build an organ that seems to have appeared from 1720. The result achieved is a stunning piece of craftsmanship and artistry. Sietze de Vries was awarded one of the first Dutch organizers to record a CD on this beautiful organ.
The first CD on which the new Catharine organ is heard in full
glory. Andreas Fischer, Pieter van Dijk and Wolfgang Zerer play
Scheidemann, Reincken and Bach, but also Degenhardt and Distler.
The CD can be ordered for € 16,- with: www.stiftung-johann-sebastian.de
