Cooperation with Albert Schweitzer

At the end of the 1950s, Hans-Joachim Schuke worked intensively with organists Heinz Sawade and Albert Schweitzer on the concept of the new Bach organ in the Divi Blasii Church in Mühlhausen. This organ is one of the few in the world to have been built according to Bach’s own specifications. In contrast to Bach’s disposition, the organ work is supplemented by five stops to enable modern organ literature to be played as well. The new organ was inaugurated on May 24, 1959.
