Aeris-Castilian replica Organ from Budapest


    Gazdagrét is a neighbourhood of Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is located in the western part of the 11th district. It is a residential area consisting of prefabricated buildings (see panelház) with a population of 11,929

    This housing estate was built in communism and it was forbidden to build a church here for decades. The foundation stone of the Holy Angels church was built in 1990, but it was built only very slowly,. It was dedicated 25 years later, in 2016. The church is one of the most beautiful modern Hungarian architectural works, its interior is wonderful. The mosaics decorating the walls of the sanctuary were made by Marko Ivan Rupnik, a world famous Slovenian Jesuit artist. The crossroads are the work of Barza Buza.

    The organ was produced by the Aeris organ factory in 2016. The main profile of this organ factory is the restoration of old organs and the creation of a certified copy of historical baroque organs. One of the most successful pieces of this work is this little Castilian organ. The organ of the Santa Maria church in Tordesillas (by Phelipe Urarte, 1716) served as a model for this instrument. The reed-pipes of organ made by
    Joaquín Lois, a famous Spanish organ builder.

    The following friends helped me to make and publish the sample set (in alphabetical order)Dominique Dantand, Gérard Lefranc, Jean-Pierre Silvestre and Adrian Wheal. If something's done well, it's thanks to them.  Thank you for their work.
