Orgel, Ettenheimmünster, Stadtpfarrkirche St. Landelin

 Johann Andreas Silbermann 1769 (for the former Benedictine abbey, transfered in 1804 to its present place)

State of preservation: majority original, some alteration of a repair in 1872 have been reversed  and lost stops renewed during restoration in 1964.

Johann Andreas Silbermann's organ in Ettenheimmünster represents a typical Alsatian instrument on the eastern bank of the Rhine.  The major sound elements not only bear French names but also resemble ideas à la mode. The indiviual elements, eg the typical treble stop „Cornet“ with added single components Nazard 2 2/3’, Doublette 2’ and Tierce1 3/5’ (as a „Cornet decomposée“), the high flute stop Sifflet 1’with divided slider are as typically French as the positive forming a mirror image of the GO/HW. Only the pedal had to be reduced for space and financial reasons.
