    gallery/ziegler00

    Sepsiszentgyörgy (Sfântu Gheorghe) is the capital city of Covasna County, Romania. Located in the central part of the country and in the historical region of Transylvania.The number of inhabitants is 55,000, and almost 80% of them are of Hungarian nationality.

    Christ the King parish church was built in 1990-2006, according to plans by Andrea Lestyán.

    The organ was built by Rudolf Ziegler in 1953 for Mountreux St. Vincent Church. The original organ was expanded in 1972 and then demolished in 2008. Reason for organ removal was that the choir and the organ does not fit correctly in the Gothic-style Church. Fortunately, the organ was not destroyed, but was released to the Christ the King Church of Sepsiszentgyörgy. 

    The organ has a French disposition, 3 manual and 42 stops. The organ was renewed and installed by Tamás Lukács in 2009.

    The recording was made with my friend Megyaszai László in May 2017.

    The following friends helped me to make and publish the sample set (in alphabetical order): Dominique Dantand, Gérard Lefranc, Nagy István,  Jos Quist, Enrico Sandrini and Adrian Wheal. If something's done well, it's thanks to them. Thank you for their work.
