Walcker organ of Miskolc Catholic church of Iron factory (from Bad Ems)
                                                                                History
Miskolc is the third largest city in Hungary, known for its heavy industry. It is also the county capital of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén and the regional centre of Northern Hungary. The population is 167,754.   

After the political changes the heavy industry is ruined and the city suffers from many problems. The iron factory had to close as well.  


The paris church of iron factory was built in 1908 from the donation of the workers of the factory. The church was built in neo-Romanesque style. The Angster organ  (II/22) was destroyed in the Second World War. After a long time there was no organ, just a harmonium. In 1998, the parish operated a religious order, the "Little Brothers of St. Francis".  


The Walcker-Organ Opus 3980 built in 1960 to Kath. Church of Bad Ems. This is a great neo-baroque organ with III/38 stops. The Bad Ems parish church donated these organ to the church of the Iron Factory in 1995. Unfortunately, there was no money inthe professionally set up and commissioned of the organ. Some of the important stops disappeared, others are not well tuned. But superb acoustics still sounds very much this monumental instrument.

The data is for information only. They depend on the operating system and other apps.

Unfortunately, are missing some of the stops of the original instrument. (Pousane 16' of the Pedal, Pommer 16' of the Great manual, Weidenpfeife 8' and Hintersatz of the Swell, Krumhorn of the Positive). The missing registers generally I added its own sound material. The Pousane and the Krumhorn stops are from the another organ (Jehmlich organ from Kecskemet). In any event, I wanted to make up for these important two stops. I hope I did not make this a big mistake because both organ are German and comes from the same period.
