Description: The organ was built in 1778 and represents a unique rococo instrument. This organ is the pinnacle in the art of organbuilding by the family Van Peteghem who, in between 1776 and 1787, enriched Flemish organ scene with a number of organs. They are esthetically the best which were made at the time. The Haringe organ is no doubt the best preserved instrument of that time. It not only survived because of its solid construction but it escaped all the different taste in organ-building and renovations over the years.
The organ has never been rebuilt and the different registers have never been modified to bring them into line with new tastes. On top of that it has an extensive an extensive stop list. The combination of all these elements makes this organ the embodiment of the Flemish organ collection which is recognised by organ-players all over the world. The organ has been renovated by J.P. Draps en G. Potvlieghe under supervision of the department of Monumentenzorg (Mr. Fouconnier en P. Roose) and took place in between 1993-1994.
