Ahrend organ - Reid Concert Hall

Reid Concert Hall, University of Edinburgh.
A 21-stop, 2-manual German organ built by  Jürgen Ahrend, Leer, Ostfriesland, 1977-78.

The firm of Ahrend, renowned for sensitive restoration of historic instruments, built the organ in the University's Reid Concert Hall in consultation with Peter Williams; it derives inspiration from early 18th-century German models.  The two manual divisions are separaately encased, but the pedal pipes share the Hauptwerk case.  The pedal board is straight and flat, the Rückpositiv stop-handles project from the case behind the player, and there are no aids to registration.  The suspended tracker action is wonderfully responsive and of particular refinement; the voicing is direct yet full of subtleties.
