The Scandinavian countries and Sweden explore two of Europe's ancient notes and music and the performance of music composers. In our exploration of organs. First the oldest in the country. By the same token the most valuable of Finland's historical warriors. Only seven such instruments are erected in the eighteenth century remain of them among some instrument is the only one which originally had two manuals and that. If not directly the product of one of the old organ building masters and one so my instrument is the creation of one of the star pupils of a master builder
our passionate guy is famous as the German master builder who created many of the instruments for which both books to Huda and Bach created their monumental works. One of the pupils in this exacting craft was a certain Eric us gum on carpenter and organ builder from Stockholm. The organ we now hear from the months of church was originally built for and directed in the church of Finland. In the Koran it Praed youd thought of an incident in the Himalayas by Johann Sebastian
Bach. We have heard the eight foot principle stop one of the original stops of the organ as built by Americans get them on in 1738. Get mana arrived in Stockholm Sweden and 1736 apparently for the purpose of building an organ for the church there.

Perhaps the most important of these is the root positive at the time of its construction and this was the only one of its kind in all of Finland and it remained so down to the year 1879. It was at this time that the instrument was removed from its original location in the church in Kolkata to its present location in the church in months a lot from the organist's point of view of the most disastrous change involved the placing of the rick positive behind the facade of the main organ rather than retaining it on the balcony rail. Many of the stops from this division of the
original organ were replaced and the pedal pipes placed in the case of the organ when it was first built are now back behind the case which contains dummy pipes in their places. Fortunately enough of the original pipework survived so that we are able to obtain a fairly accurate tonal picture of the original instrument. The compositions we're hearing are all played on stops from the original organ not those replaced as part of the 1879 relocation.
