Jehmlich organ at St. Aegidien’s church in Oschatz

Carl Gottlieb Jehmlich (1786–1867) & Sons, based in Zwickau, built the organ in 1851 with mechanical action and slider windchests, following six predecessor instruments. II/44. Organs have been documented at St. Aegidien’s since 1495. In 1933, the organ was rebuilt to achieve a different sound and to upgrade the technology; a third manual was also added. III/56. A new console with manual ranges from C – a''', pedal range from C – f ' and electro-pneumatic controls document the technical state of the art for this era. When rehabilitation work began in the church in 2002, the organ was first encased. From 2003 to 2005, the organ was restored by the Sieversdorf-based organ workshop Christian Scheffler in accordance with the 1933 design.
