I have long wondered how old organs in that region have managed to resist the dangers of flooding and water penetrating the roofs and towers of ancient church buildings. Has location of European organs in galleries been inspired by the need to keep them above "sea level"? Also, water damage has been such a problem from leaking roofs in the US; has the traditional construction of European churches somehow solved this problem, or do we just not hear about it so much over here in The New World?   Mac Hayes   Mr. Hayes, This instrument is buyed last year from America to Belgium, a client of = my. I was his contact person. We have hardly troubles with roofs in the churches. The roofs are = excellent mostly. Hardly problems with it. Most of our organs are high placed in the churches. galleries. Floods also. we know what it is to have water in your home, so for that we have the = dikes and controlled ofcourse.   greetings   Louis Huivenaar Netherlands Harmonium and Reedorgan restorer Appraiser under Oath for Harmoniums and Reedorgans in Europe +31 75 684 4858 ( Tel/Fax Factory) +31 75 684 6552 ( Privat) +31 653 117 697 ( Mobil) Website: www.harmoniums.com
