Nuremberg is town in southern Germany, in Bavaria to be more precise. It’s the second largest city in Bavaria actually, right behind Munich. Main place of worship in the city is the St. Lorenz Church made in Gothic architectural style. Even though the church itself is a thing of beauty, we’re here today to talk about its organ.
German pipe organ (orgel) finds – St. Lorenz Church orgel
There are actually three sets of organ in this church, one main one, and two smaller ones. Today we’re just going to have a look at the main organ. They were built in 1937 by Steinmeyer and Oettingen. The comprise out of 5 manuals, 227 ranks and 12,184 pipes.
Have a listen at the organ and let me know what you think. It is not the best recording, but hey, it you get the gist of it. You can also enjoy in the church itself, the architecture. I have to say that I really love this church. It is big, but at the same time, it is also kinda small, not easy to lose yourself in it. It’s kinda hard to explain. Plus the organ sound amazing. Check it out if you ever happen to find yourself in Nuremberg.
