Lindevang Church Frederiksberg11. June 2019
The church was consecrated in 1866. A large expansion of the church took place in 2014 to 2015 and a procurement process for a new pipe organ was initiated by the organ committee. The new organ was inaugurated in November 2018. The organ façade was designed by Marcussen & Son in cooperation with Architects Meinich/Trinelise Sonne.
A total of 1.315 organ pipes are placed in three divisions: the Great organ in the front, to the right the Pedal organ. The Swell organ and the wind system with wedge-shaped bellows are placed in the niche. The key action is mechanical, the stop action electrical, with combinations.
Koblinger: HV+SV, P+HV, P+SV
The result is extremely successful and it feels a lot like a whole new instrument. A few components are reused. The Marcussen team has succeeded in creating a perfect connection between old and new. The tonal fusion is perfect, and the large and colorful outline gives almost unprecedented possibilities of expression in both liturgical and concerts.
A few disparities of the previous instrument have been eliminated, and all the works of the organ now appear well balanced and in harmony.
From the declaration of approval when rebuilding and extending the organ in the Trinity Church, Trinity Sogn, Skads Provsti, Ribe Stift, June 2018
The craftsmanship of the restoration / reconstruction is convincing and the work is done with accomplished and in the right" spirit "- done with great experience, understanding and consciousness of traditions.
With the special dimensions and very long mechanical connections, the organ has always been demanding to play. With the recent work done the pipe organ is - probably better than ever – and it that corresponds naturally to the rich, healthy and solid sound impressions.
The competent, very patient-minded intonation work deserves great praise.
Brødremenighedens kirke in ChristiansfeldIn the declaration of approval from May 2017 it is stated that
The results of the restoration are in every way extremely successful"
“The craftsmanship and the materials used are of high class and nothing is left to chance. The sound is in perfect balance - a tone that is nuanced in relation to the size of the organ, where both registrations and tutti are characterized by fullness, breadth and gravity - and by great beauty
Restoration of the organ in Dråby Church, Syddjurs Provist, Aarhus Stift. From the approval declaration, restoration report October 2017:
The unique Marcussen character is not to be mistaken. This pipe organ has got its own unique personality and is to be considered among the best of international concert hall organs.
The result is not perceived a copy or a compromise, but as a coherent whole of "universal" character.
The intonation work is done at the highest level; the organ sounds convincingly big - but in addition simply remarkably beautiful.
