inequal temperament : JUNG, VALOTTI











The instrument is situated behind the high altar. The case contains 2 divisions grouped on a common windchest and 2 Pedal's windchests on each side.
The simple mechanics is "suspended".

The desired musical objective was to develop an instrument which can serve effectively the polyphonic writing. 
That is why, the Trompette 8' of the second keyboard, the Dulciane 8' of the first keyboard and the Posaune 16' of Pedal in particular, were built in copy of reed stops of Germanic style (Schnitger) to favor many and various mixtures with the other foundation stops of the organ.

The Plenum of this organ is voluntarily deep to remain "readable" in the acoustics relatively reverberating of this church. The agreement was made according to the temperament Jung (derived of Valloti).
