Date Built: 1879


The two-manuals 18-stops late-romantic organ was built by Sándor Országh jr. in 1879. The Országh Organ Factory - near the Rieger and Angster Organ Factory - was the third largest organ factory in Hungary. The factory was founded by Sándor Országh jr. in 1864. The factory produced more than 600 organs, most of them are one or two manual instruments. Its most important work was the three-manuals organ of the Great Church of Kecskemét. At the time of the great economic crisis in 1934, the factory destroyed and liquidated.

The organ was rebuilt by the Aquincum organ factory in 1994, according to the original designs of Sándor Országh. The organ is fundamentally late-romantic style, but the disposition makes it suitable for Baroque and XX. century works too.

The following friends helped me to make and publish the sample set (in alphabetical order): Dominique Dantand, Gérard Lefranc, Nagy István, Enrico Sandrini and Adrian Wheal. If something's done well, it's thanks to them. Thank you for their work.
