Composition (54 notes)
Dessus de hautbois 8'
Basse de Clairon 4'.
Pedal (17 notes) ‘en tirasse’
The organ is signed by John Abbey (1785-1859) and
dated 1845. According to Yves Fossaert, the design of
this Abbey is indeed very "classic French" (pipes cut to
the tone), as it was still practiced at the beginning of the
19th century - and so, in terms of instrumental
aesthetics, this Abbey sounds.
