Castilian-style organ with divided stops. The construction and harmonization techniques are in line with the basic characteristics we find in organs from the 18th century in Castile.

Although it was designed mainly for educational purposes and for the research of the Spanish organ repertoire, this organ is also suitable as a concert instrument.
Its aesthetics play an important role in this organ, both in its architecture and ornamentation as well as in the character of the instrument.
The bonds between two very different organ cultures will be a happy reward for this project.

Technical details

The technical characteristics of the instrument are the same to those of the organs built in Castile throughout the 18th century, having similar dimension, arrangement of the secret, key action and touch, as well as bellows and wind pressure. The pipe work matches that of the 18th century organs in terms of alloys, construction technique, carvings and all the details that bring us closer to that style.
