Cathedrale de Notre-Dame, Antwerp (Anvers), Belgium

Pierre Scyhven, Bruxelles, 1891.

A remarkable instrument which differs from contemporary Fre nch organs in its tonal structure, in having more brilliant choruses, and in having reeds which do not dominate the flues. The ornate casework dates from 1657. Aeolus recordings on the instrument may be found here and here.
