Johannus installs Ecclesia organ in the prestigious Almudena Cathedral
Most recently our Johannus team installed a three-manual Ecclesia D-450 with 54 stops in the prestigious Crypt of the Almudena Cathedral in Madrid, Spain.
Just below the Almudena Cathedral, with the three neo protogothic semicircular doors on the picture, is the crypt. Its construction begun on April 4, 1883, and once inside, the style is of neo-Romanesque and Byzantine influence.
Inside the crypt, it is all stone construction, and most strikingly are the 558 columns, especially the 50 monolithic columns (one-piece) of the central part, facing the altar.
The new Ecclesia organ is able to fill every corner of the Crypt with its realistic pipe organ sounds. Thanks to the revolutionary, state-of-the-art audio system, the church organist has the feeling of being at a three-manual cathedral organ, surrounded by authentic pipes. The high-quality amplifiers, subwoofers and loudspeakers simply intensify that feeling.The large number of loudspeakers are hidden behind two beautiful pipe-facades.
