New organ, Alexander Schuke Orgelbau GmbH, 2008

In 1604 Heinrich Compenius the Younger built an organ in Magdeburg Cathedral. In 1830 it was replaced by a new case and in 1856 it was replaced by an organ by Adolf Reubke. In 1896 Röver built an organ with 100 stops in the cathedral, which was destroyed in World War II in 1945.

A cock statue from the original Compenius organ was preserved, which is displayed in a showcase at the foot of the organ. Construction of the new Schuke organ in the cathedral began in 2004 and was completed in 2008 (opus 619).

It has 93 stops on IV manuals and pedal, mechanical tone action and electric stop action. Some of the mechanical couplers are supported by Kowalyshyn servo-pneumatic levers (Fisk devices).

The Compenius cock is integrated as a copy in the console and can be removed from the organ by means of an elevator. Only the crowing has to be done by the organist himself at the keys.

The old Schuke organ from 1969 (opus 402) has its place above the Paradise Gate of Magdeburg Cathedral with III manuals and pedal as well as 37 stops. However, there is no coupling between the organs (as in Königsberg or Erfurt Cathedral).
