  • Oldest playable organ

    I like doing research on old pipe organs. I came across this organ. According tot the video they said that this is the oldest playable organ in the world dating back tot the 1300's

    Have a look at this organ.

    Do anyone perhaps know about other interesting old pipe organ videos?

    I also found this organ. It's one of the oldest organs in Holland in the 1500's

      I've seen that video before. Quite the instrument. I'd hate to have a lot of registration changes though. . . the lever system for controlling ranks looks tedious. . .

        The oldest pipe organ still playable is in Switzerland: Sion, church of Notre-Dame de Valère (about 1435).
        The second one I think that is in Italy: church of San Petronio in Bologna; Lorenzo di Giacomo da Prato (about 1471/1475).

          E. Power Biggs included the Sion organ in his LP album "The Organ in Sight and Sound". I believe he dated it to 1390.
