The Transept Organ
Oude Kerk, Amsterdam



Transept organ Oude Kerk, Amsterdam

           


In 1657 Hans Wolf Schonat, after completing the main organ in the Nieuwe Kerk, built a new transept organ in the Oude Kerk. It replaced Hendrik Niehof´s instrument from 1545.
In 1823 the Schonat organ's pipework was removed to be used in a new organ for the Zuiderkerk. After the Zuiderkerk had been declared redundant, the pipes moved first to Aalten, and in 1977 to Oegstgeest, where they form part of the Metzler organ in the Willebrordkerk.

In 1964-65 the organ builders Ahrend & Brunzema reconstructed Schonat's instrument in the original case from 1658, departing from the stop list as recorded by Hess (1774).
In 2002 Flentrop of Zaandam retuned the organ in mean-tone temperament, thereby adding an important facet to the sound of this organ.
