THE FATE OF THE MAULBRONN ORGAN
In the monastery's 400 years of organ history, things did not always run smoothly. Reports of organs at Maulbronn go back to the early 17th century. The first verifiable organ was from 1613. There were nine organs in total, many of which were often expanded, converted or relocated. The predecessor to the present-day organ lasted only 30 years. Its condition was considered structurally and acoustically irreparable. Thus, in 2002, a decision was made to replace it.
