Orgel in Maria Langegg
THE ORGAN OF MARIA LANGEGG
In 1782 the Vienna organ maker Stefan Helmich built the Rococo organ of Maria Langegg. The instrument was transported by ship from the workshop at Ro▀au 14 (or Hahngasse 6 today) to Aggsbach Dorf. The final stretch was negotiated by ox-drawn carriage.

The instrument with its two-piece main body and choir organ recalls the south German-Austrian tradition of the Baroque period. Classicist details of the design and above all the sound produced clearly reveal that a new epoch had begun. The white-golden colouring, together with the carved choir screen, creates a very awesome spatial impression.
