Vaar Frelsers kirke ( Our Saviours church ) in Haugesund celebrated its 100-year's jubilee in 2001, and I have startet collecting churchmusical historic information connected to Haugesund and this church.
These pages started out as an experiment trying to make my own web-pages (with Microsoft Publisher 97). I first made some information about myself, but who is interested in me?
So I got the idea about organ-pages! I told one of the minister's, and his respons was: "Who's interested in organs ???" Time will show!
This 2. edition web-information about some local organs in Haugesund will be further developed in the future. I hope to be able to connect sound files with samples of each of the organs, and they will be frequently supplied with more information of the organs, the new projects and general church-musical history of Haugesund. I take the pictures myself, but must get a better scanner, as the one I use has to low resolution to give the quality i want.
I chose to write in english because of my own frustration over all the information I find on the net in languages that I dont understand. I apologize for not having full control of the organ-terminology in english ( or english in general ), but promise to adjust descriptions and words when I get aware of changes needed.
Please contact me if you have questions. You can send me E-mail
Last changes: Dec 19th. 2006 ( Have been unable to acces the pages since 1999. Today I made just minor, cosmetic changes)
In 2003, a new main organ from Verschueren Orgelbauw was completed. At the moment (dec 2006), these pages have not been updated with information about this instrument, but it will come shortly.
