heva Posted April 6, 2009 Share Posted April 6, 2009 In the Mattäus-passion days, like myself, many of us may be playing on a 'chestorgan' (is that the correct translation for the 'truhenorgel'?). Just wondering: in a baroque orchestra, where does this organ fit in? Is it an acurate copy of a baroque instrument or is it (as I suspect) in fact a 20th century (neo-baroque) invention? I know of only two examples (seen on photo) of 'real' baroque organs-like-a-box, but these were actually normal organs in a different housing (quite large in fact).
