     Lutheran's Organ from Fehérvár (Hungary)

    gallery/luthherans fehervar00

    Székesfehérvár is a city in central Hungary and is the 9th largest in the country.  It is inhabited by 101,973 people.  In the Middle Ages the city was a royal residence and was one of the most important cities of Hungary. 
    In the Székesfehérvár Basilica, 37 kings and 39 queens consort were crowned, 15 rulers have been buried here, the diets were held and the crown jewels were kept here.

    In Székesfehérvár, the Lutheran parish was always small. The number is currently around 1000.

    The Lutheran church was built according to the plans of Gyula Sándy between 1925-1944. This long period of construction also indicates that the parish has always struggled with financial difficulties.


    For 40 years after World War II, the church had a one-manual, 6-register pneumatic organ.

    After that, based on the plans of Gábor Trajtler, the Aquincum organ factory began to build a two-manual, 24-register organ. By 2006, half of the organ was completed, but the money ran out. The organ was thus used for 13 years. Meanwhile, the Aquincum organ factory was closed down. Finally, with the help of the city self-government, under the direction of Miklós Teleki, Apertum Kft. made the organ. The organ was handed over on October 31, 2019, the day of the Reformation.
