Eule organ at the Frauenkirche church in Grimma

Hermann Eule (1846–1929) founded his organ building company in Bautzen in 1872, and it remains successful to this day. In 1928,Eule rebuilt the organ, which was originally built by the company Jehmlich of Dresden for the Frauenkirche church in Grimma, with 25 stops. The organ features pneumatic action and pallet windchests and is recorded as work 167 in the Eule's production catalogue. Pallet windchest refers to a specific type of pneumatic windchest system.  In 2005, the Oboe 8' stop from the no-longer-preserved Eule organ of the Mary and Martha church in Bautzen was added to the Swell division. II/30. The organ continues to impress listeners during church services and at concerts.
