Eule Orgelbau organ at the St. Wenceslaus parish church in Wurzen

The long-standing organ building company Hermann Eule Orgelbau GmbH built the organ, its 626th, in 1999. It is located in the north gallery of the choir, which was partitioned off as a winter church in 1981. II/18 + 5 transmissions. On the west side of the partitioned nave is the currently unplayable Jehmlich Bros. organ from 1901, in near-original condition. II/40. A general overhaul of this organ remains a long-term goal. The Eule organ was modelled after the sound concept of an 18th century French organ. The third manual functions as a coupler manual. The Pedal division has an independent Posaune 16' as well as four transmission stops from the Great division.
