Photo: Jeroen de Haan Photos console and interior: Victor Weller The organ was built in 2009 by Blumenroeder of Haguenau, with conservation of the case of the former organ of Mutin (1907). Its stops were copied from German originals of the 18th century. It was primarily constructed for the accompaniment of the cantatas, which are performed each month in this church. Its pitch is 415 Hz, and it is tuned in an uneven Germanic inspired temperament. The former Mutin organ - already severely altered by Haerpfer in 1966 - is now in Blumenroeder's workshop near Strasbourg. Two Mutin stops were used in the new organ: Flûte and Montre (but reharmonised).
This church was built in 1907 for the parish, which was founded in 1882 by Pastor Wagner. The façade of the temple, sober, contrasts with the Art Nouveau spirit of the hall of worship. A large glass roof on the ceiling illuminates the premises. The "table of communion-chair-organ" is typically Protestant and testifies to the importance of music, speech and sacraments in Protestant worship.
