Convent of the Cordeliers Fribourg

Organ details


  • 1747-1750: construction by Johann Conrad Speisegger from Schaffhausen
  • 1815: conversion of the organ by Aloys Mooser
  • 1865: alterations by Haller and Mauracher
  • 1914: complete reconstruction and extension of the organ with installation of a pneumatic traction by Goll from Lucerne
  • 1968: Goll's organ was dismantled. The Walcker firm was commissioned to build a new organ in the old cases, using some Speisegger pipes still present, including the front pipes of the positive. Due to the restoration of the church building, it took a long time before the project could be started.
  • 1985 the plan was changed to a reconstruction of the original instrument
  • 1999 the organ was not yet completed when Walcker went bankrupt. The work was then continued by Ferdinand Stemmer, and in 2002 the organ could be used.
