Rebuild with respect for the organ
When we rebuild a pipe organ, we do it with great respect for the original sound and design of the organ. As a result the existing façade is often reused, and new pipe material is adjusted to blend in with the existing pipes, as the older organs usually include pipe material worth preserving.
SEE EXAMPLES OF OUR REBUILDINGS
We are one of the world's most experienced organ builder companies. This always allows us to draw on our own experiences and documentation from the many tasks we have solved over the years. Through our long experience, we ensure that we restore or maintain with understanding and respect for the time in which the individual organ is built.
Restoration of organs
Marcussen & Søn have been entrusted with significant restoration projects in both Denmark and abroad, among other places at the St. Bavo Kerk and Nieuwe Kerk in Holland. In Denmark we have done restorations and reconstructions of important historical pipe organs in a.o. Roskilde Cathedral, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List

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.
