Theo Jellema on the organ at Noordwolde

Theo Jellema

Organ recital given by organist Theo Jellema on the historic Huisz-Freytag-Lohman organ in the Dorpskerk in Noordwolde.

‘Historic’ is the most fitting description possible for this organ: all the way back in the 15th century there was a small organ at Noordwolde, and much of its original pipework has survived. The organ has a very specific, direct sound, clear and sometimes even hard in tone and colour. There are many admirers of the prestant family of pipes and the Vox Humana, covered by a wooden resonance chest. That the organ is in such good condition is down to the Paul en Ann Moermanstichting. Paul Moerman was the organist for the church for 56 years, starting in 1946. He was extremely careful with the organ and kept strict control over any restoration work, to ensure that the organ’s particular and recognisable sound would not be lost. Between 2004 and 2006 the choice was made for conservational restoration, due to which the organ has been restored to its former glory. This evening organist Theo Jellema will demonstrate that to us!
