This organ from 1746 is one of the few preserved instruments of still in existence by the organ makers' family Papenius, predominant in the Harz region, originally made for Hordorf church. Papenius had certain difficulties to come to terms with the low ceiling of the Hordorf church and decided to place the usual top positive at the side of the main organ. It was a rather small organ in its time and region but nonetheless offering sufficient options for chorale as well as trio play.
