Geißler organ at the Eilenburg mountain church

Conrad Geißler (1825–1897) ran his own workshop in Eilenburg from 1852–1897, after completing his training and apprenticeship with Weinecke, Ladegast, Mende and Walcker. In 1864, he took on his 27th project, building the organ for St. Mary’s Church, also known as the mountain church. II/22. Featuring mechanical action and slider windchests, the organ was equipped with a Swell division. Between 1975 and 1999, the organ was unplayable. The company Mitteldeutscher Orgelbau A. Voigt GmbH performed a general overhaul in 2000.
