Arp Schnitger


Arp Schnitger (1648-1719) was a highly influential German master organ builder. He was primarily active in Northern Europe, especially the Netherlands and Germany, where a number of his instruments survive to the present day.

Notable examples still in use include the organ at St. Pancratius Church, Neuenfelde, Hamburg, originally completed in 1688, his largest two-manual instrument. Organs like this are credited with inspiring the renaissance in organ building during the mid to late 20th Century, with a return to mechanical (tracker) action built on the Werk Principle, and smaller instruments, as distinct from the Victorian trend in symphonic organs.
