San Pedro y San Pablo church Granada

Organ details


The organ of the church of San Pedro y San Pablo was built according to the inscription on the wind chest In honor of God our Lord and His Holy Mother conceived without original sin, Salvador Pabón y Baldés made me in Granada. Year 1779. It was originally located laterally in the nave, the most common location of Spanish organs, and was moved to its current location on a tribune over the main entrance in the beginning of the 20th century.
It is a modest instrument that responds to the characteristics of the typical small Spanish baroque organs, with a single keyboard and divided stops, the trumpets placed horizontally in chamade being the most brilliant and powerful stop. The sound of its Flautado is very soft and peaceful, and the Lleno is clear without stridency, as well as the Corneta. Although its dimensions seem a little limited for the venue, especially in its current position, it is an instrument of great beauty and delicate character, with a very sensitive wind, ideal for the Renaissance and Iberian Baroque repertoire and some other European schools, or to accompany the voice or solo instruments.

  • Built by Salvador Pabón y Valdés in 1779. 
  • Restoration byFrancisco Alonso Suárez in 2005.

One keyboard of 45 keys (C-c3). Short octave. Divided stops between c1 and c#1.
