A high point among not only “the large organs” but also in connection with the collective organ project in St. Laurenskerk in Rotterdam was the completion in 1973 of the church’s large, 18-meter high main organ of 85 stops – with purely mechanical playing and stop action. The internationally acclaimed result came about not only as a consequence of study tours to France and Spain, but also to a great extent through experience gained in among other places Linz. The work lasted for over 3½ years, of which 22 months were spent on the erection and voicing in the church.
