Brumath Organ as seen on Who Do You Think You Are (J.K.Rowling episode)

At the end of JKR's episode, she was standing in a nice church in Brumath in Alsace-Lorraine which seemed to boast a very pretty organ with a Ruckpositiv. I wondered if anyone could shed some light on the builder and specification?

 

This possibly?.....although the Kern website says it was a restoration. The case in the film looked newer and more Germanic whereas the spec. suggests a more French type instrument - there are people on here who will know better though. Wiki. says there is a Protestant and Catholic church in the town - I suspect that this is the organ in the Catholic church whereas JKR was at the Protestant I think.

 

Isn't this decidedly geeky!!!!

The picture just flashed by, and I must have a look at the recorded programme tomorrow, but if I remember correctly, the organ looked like this:

But........can anyone top this excellenty 'current' piece of Mander-Discussion-type research (I won't repeat what my wife said when she heard about what was going on here at 9.02 last pm!!) and put a name to the music on the console?

Looks a bit like a Trio Sonata...

Hello,

But........can anyone top this excellenty 'current' piece of Mander-Discussion-type research (I won't repeat what my wife said when she heard about what was going on here at 9.02 last pm!!) and put a name to the music on the console?

the key is E flat major, so my guess is Bach BWV 622 "O Mensch bewein dein Sünde groß" from the Orgelbüchlein.
