Abarca de Campos in Castile. Organ built in 1778 by Taddeo Ortega SPAIN

The reed stop heard here is just great. The organ is in Spain, in Abarca de Campos in Castile (30 inhabitants), it was built in 1778 by Taddeo Ortega. It has 1 keyboard of 45 keys, an 8-note pedalboard, and 26 registers which can be split on the keyboard in two (it can be seen here in fact). The keyboard itself is a sight. The music snippet is from a "tiento" by Correa de Arauxo, early 17th century. The organist is Francis Chapelet.
