With this release we present a small positive organ built in 1972 by Paul Ott of Göttingen for the Evangelical Church of Kirchhain - as reported on a handwritten cartouche inside the secret of the wind chest.

The organ, of very modest dimensions, was dismantled and sold in recent years, giving way to a larger instrument.
In 2017 it was bought by the current owner, M° Gabriele Giunchi, and placed in his private home in Bologna.
In 2018 the organ builder Daniele Michelotto from Albignasego (Padua) oversaw the restoration and expansion, installing the 8 ft Vox Humana stop (on the slide prepared by Ott in the wind chest but left vacant) and the 27-key pedal board (without own pipes, hard-coupled to the keyboard).

It is an organ of very small dimensions but with a particularly rich stop list, which allows you to deal with a rather vast repertoire for an instrument of this kind; the intonation is perfectly balanced, fresh and light and is very closely reminiscent of a classic Trühenorgel - which makes the Ott positive perfectly suited to continuo.

And it is precisely in this perspective that we propose it: as a small instrument for the continuo and for the vast harpsichord-organ repertoire that finds in the lightness, variety and balance of its sounds a very effective means of expression.
