INFORMATION

A HARMONIOUS ORGAN SOUND

For the construction of the organ of the CGK Ichthus in Urk, material from the former Kleuker organ of the St. Johanniskirche in Hannover was largely used. The pipework of the Detlev-Kleuker organ was ‘widely’ scaled and therefore offered many possibilities for creating a different sound image, for example. The construction of the current organ is in width and made with modern materials. Apart from the pipework and windchests, nothing of the old materials has been reused.

Organ maker Ide Boogaard from Rijssen was commissioned to build a three-manual organ. Stef Tuinstra acted as advisor. Together with the organ committee they started to realize a new beautiful instrument.

Three Manuals

A new three-manual concept was created with three manuals (Hoofdwerk, Rugwerk, Bovenwerk in swell box) and Pedal in a new organ case with new front pipe work. The front design is in line with organs previously made by Boogaard in Geldermalsen (2004/2005) and Scherpenzeel (2013).

The pipes, the main work drawer and the swell drawers of the Kleuker organ were reused. New C and Cis drawers were made for the Pedal; a drawer from the former Van Leeuwen organ (1953/1956) from the Grote Kerk in Vianen was used for the Rugwerk. The three-manual keyboard also comes from Vianen.

Expansion

For the expansion of the disposition, some registers were made new; a number of stops could be supplied from the organ builder’s stock. The front pipework was completely new. New Trumpets 16′ and 8′ were made for the Hoofdwerk, the two Kleuker trumpets of the Hauptwerk returned on the Bovenwerk as Bassoon 16′ and on the Rugwerk as Schalmei 8′. In order to offer more counterweight to the new reed arrangement of the manuals, the pedal reeds were provided with wider throats. The Hoofdwerk was fitted with a new Cornet V treble.

Hinsz

Initially, the Bätz organ of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in The Hague was the starting point for the sound. As the project progressed, Hinsz’s sound world – and in particular his organs in Kampen and Bolsward – became more in line with the possibilities offered by the sizing of the pipes. Before that, the intonation was thoroughly revised by Ide Boogaard. For the Bovenwerk, more romantic atmospheres were sought with the placement of strings and a swell box.
