Estonia


Domkirche, Tallinn

The organ in the Domkirche, Tallinn, Estonia is an outstanding example of a German romantic instrument, originally built by Friedrich Ladegast of Weißenfels in 1878. Some tonal additions and a new action were provided in 1913 by William Sauer of Frankfurt an der Oder. Following Estonian independence, the organ was restored by Christian Scheffler of Jacobsdorf in 1998. The organ contains an almost unlimited number of colorful and contrasting unison voices. The Swell Aeolodicon is a soft-toned free reed stop.
