Chamber concert on Easter Sunday in St. James Basilica

Organ concerts in St. James Basilica in Prague are very famous for their long tradition and absolutely unique sound of the organ instrument. St. James' organ dates to the very beginning of the 18th century.

About organ:

The two-manual organ with a pedal keyboard and 26 stops was completed in 1705. Its case, which is still admired today, was quite unique in its time. So far the latest major reconstruction was carried out between 1981 and 1982 by "Varhany Krnov" (Rieger-Kloss). At present the organ has four manuals, 91 speaking stops and 8,277 pipes.
