» Church organs 1848-

In 1978 “The largest village church in Scandinavia” in Vestervig  (DK) acquired a remarkable organ of four manuals and pedal with 52 stops – “un Grand Orgue de 32 pieds”, based on a draft by Svend Prip. The console design, specification and disposition of the departments included several innovations; among others things 8 of the Pedal’s 13 stops were also playable from the fourth manual as a Solo/Bombardeværk.
