Holy Cross

The organ of the Catholic parish Church Holy Cross, Würzburg was built in 1998. It is an Opus 1764 and was made by organ building company Johannes Klais, Bonn. The organ has 35 stops, which are distributed between the Great, Positive and Swell. It also has a suspended and mechanical organ action as well as a setting device. Being located in the gallery of Holy Cross church, the organ’s sound is enhanced as it reverberates off the wooden ceiling. As well as its dark red ornamentation, the Spanish trumpets in the facade are particularly eye catching. The instrument was designed and constructed by the master organ builder Dr Hans-Wolfgang Theobald, who comes from the parish.
