The Arp Schnitger Organ in Eenum
Gwendolyn Toth, organ

In 1704 the village of Eenum in the Netherlands commissioned an organ from the great German organ maker Arp Schnitger that still survives today - one of nine Schnitgers in the Groningen province, part of the reason that this province together with Ost-Friesland in neighboring Germany is known as “the European organ garden.” Another 1704 Schnitger is located in the nearby town of Godlinze, and is nearly identical in outward appearance; but the two organs sound fascinatingly different. The Eenum organ exemplifies Schnitger’s late 17th-century organ building style - even with the 1809 changes - whereas the Godlinze organ now looks forward to an 18th-century sound world.
