Description: December 2017 we have recorded for Hauptwerk the main organ of the Laurentius & Elisabeth Cathedral situated Mathenesserlaan 305 in Rotterdam.
The organbuilder Elbertse of Aalten built a pneumatic organ with 30 stops on two manuals an pedal in 1923. The pipe facade was designed by the church's archtect P.G. Buskens.
An extensive transformation took place in 1997/98, executed by the organbuilders Adema Schreurs from Amsterdam with help from may parish volunteers.
The disposition of the Swell (now third manual) was reconstructed and a french Fagot 16' and Trompet harmonique 8' were added. The existing Hobo 8' was replaced by a french Hobo.
The pedal Open Fluit 4' was replaced by a Trombone made from pine-wood. The Bazuin 16' was extended with a subcontra-octave to provide the transmission of a Bazuin 32'. The largest 12 pipes of this stop are also made of pine-wood.
More extensive was the addition of the Positive (now second manual). Tree stops are completely new: the Klarinet, Engelse Hoorn and Viola 4'. All other pipework comes from the organbuilders stock. The preumatic system was electrified and the console completely rebuild. Originally placed on the left-hand side of the balcony, the console was moved to its present location, almost in front of the organ, in May 2003.
