Installation of the month: Ecclesia in Norway
A magnificent Ecclesia 2 manual organ with a pipe front was installed on one of the largest military bases in Norway in August of this year.
The military base in Setermoen in the north of Norway was set up in 1898. The base houses 2000 military personnel, many of whom attend the weekly service.
The Ecclesia with a SP50 pipe front was purchased to accompany congregational singing during the services. The organ has 34 stops, 2 manuals and an 8.1 audio system. The magnificent sound of the organ emerges from 9 high quality speakers, which are incorporated in the pipe front.
The organ was installed in a new interior with hard walls and a wood floor. These give the building good acoustics and make the organ sound fantastic.
