Please, support us in the restoration of the Jules Anneessens organ!

The organ has been playing weekly during services for over a hundred years. No wonder then that parts of the organ are in need of restoration. To improve the sound quality the brotherhood would also like to add a few new timbres, such as Basson-Hautbois 8, Quinte 3, Fourniture, Violoncelle 8 and Viole 4.
