2004 Ottes Organ Móstoles [Back to Library]

Producer: Hauptwerk NL
Builder: Ottes
Country: Spain
Manuals: 3
Pedalboard: No
Audio Ouput:
Date Built: 2004


With respect to form, the new organ is adapted to the current, rebuilt interior. The organ case has been treated by the tempera technique, and profiles are gilded.

The decorations are in part derived from the altar and offering table. The organ has 21 stops as did the instrument from around 1550.
The organ is built in the classical style and is equipped with mechanical key and stop action.

The organ case is of solid wood with panels and the wind chest is made of solid oak.

The wind system consists of a wedge-bellows for Great and Pedal and a small hanging wedge-bellows with tremulant for the Brustwerk (Organo Expresivo).

Metal pipe work has a composition of 60% tin to prevent large tuning excursions during temperature changes; in addition the pipes are cut to length.

Stopped pipes are constructed of 75% hammered lead. The wooden pipes of the lowest octaves are made of pine and oak. The Fagot 16 pedal stop is constructed with boots and resonators of solid oak.
Of particular interest is the horizontal Trumpet with shallots of cherry wood which gives a nice round, non-metallic sound.
