Kreutzbach organ at St. Laurentius parish church, Pegau

Urban Kreutzbach (1796–1868), student of Carl Gottlob Häcker, founded his own workshop in Borna in 1828. His sons and his grandson ran the company until 1903. During this time, the company built more than 200 organs. The organ built by Urban Kreutzbach in 1854 for St. Laurentius parish church in Pegau is his greatest work, featuring 35 stops. During church renovations in 1934, the organ was given an open pipe façade, which makes it visually unrecognisable as a Kreutzbach façade. However, the new design retained the mechanical action. The Bochmann company, based in Kohren-Sahlis, repaired the organ in 2000.
