Lemmer is a popular lakeside resort with a population of 10,000. Lemmer has been an inhabited village since the 11th century, and since the Middle Ages it was an important fishing town in the Netherlands, thanks to its fleet of 150 ships.

The Roman Catholic church in Lemmer, the St. Willibrordus church, was built in 1901 based on the plans of Nicolaas Molenaar, an architect from The Hague. The church was renovated in 1993.

The Sint Willibrorduskerk in Lemmer already had an organ before 1868. It was a closet organ. In 1868, the company Adema installed a new organ in the church, which was radically renovated in 1934 by the company Steinmann & Vierdag. The current organ of the church was made by Flentrop Orgelbouw in 1977-78. The 9-register mechanical organ with one manual and pedal mechanism is suitable for playing simpler Renaissance and Baroque works in addition to serving the liturgy. The pedal register is from a 1934 Steinmann & Vierdag organ.

Special thanks to Leander vd Bos for obtaining the license. He made the recording. The following friends helped me to make and publish the sample set (in alphabetical order): Dominique Dantand, Gerard Lefranc, Nagy Istvan and Jean-Pierre Silvestre. If something's done well, it's thanks to them. Thank you for their work.
It gives me great pleasure that, in cooperation with Leander, this is already the third Dutch organ that we can provide free of charge to Hauptwerk-using organists.
