Johannus Ecclesia Choir 4 x 26 speaking stops / 2 manuals / 30-note straight pedal board / light oak
The church organ that doesn't compromise. This is the Ecclesia. It began with a desire to create an organ powerful enough to support congregrational singing, and to provide the organist with all the tools necessary to meet any challenge and fulfill any need.
THE FIVE ECCLESIA FAMILY MEMBERS
With five different models, the Ecclesia series offers a perfect solution for every choir and every church. Be it the two-manual Choir organ or the three-manual flagship of the Ecclesia range, the D-450: all Ecclesia organs fully meet the individual needs of their organists with equal elegance.
Take the Ecclesia choir organ, appropriately named Choir. This subtle yet elegant instrument is ideally suited for singing choirs, thanks to the speakers and the subwoofer that are integrated in the back of the organ console. The result is a fusion of song and accompaniment that blends harmoniously to reach every corner of the church.
At Johannus we fully realise that pure harmonisation is the desire of every church organist. With two manuals, 26 stops and full pedal, the Choir simply does what it should: accompany choral singing. Modest when needed, exuberant when required.
FOUR ORGANS IN ONE
When purchasing an Ecclesia, organists can choose from three different dispositions. In addition, while playing they have the choice of four different sample styles. The romantic style evokes the vocal music of Hendrik Andriessen, the baroque style does complete justice to the cantates of Johann Sebastian Bach, the symphonic style embodies Camille Saint-Saëns oratorios and the historic style brings 17th century music fully back to life. In fact, one Ecclesia organ puts four organs at the organist’s fingertips.
AUTHENTIC PIPE ORGAN SOUNDS
The Real Time Sampling technology used in the entire series greatly reduces the difference between the Ecclesia and a true pipe organ. With the digital recordings of the authentic sounds of various pipe organs that are reproduced in de Ecclesia, the organist has famous pipe organ sounds at his disposal - all from the same organ bench.
TWELVE UNIQUE REVERBS
All Ecclesia models have the so-called ASR-12™ system. This technology gives the church organist the choice of twelve unique reverbs. The high-fidelity reverb gives the impression that all cathedral acoustics are within reach, which in fact they are. No more and no less.
With 250 memory levels of eight memory locations, the organist can store registrations of practically his entire musical oeuvre. In addition, all expression pedals of the Ecclesia are programmable: as swell pedal, or as a general crescendo.
You begin pianissimo, tap the expression pedal with your foot to mezzoforte and then ease it up to a forceful fortissimo. This symbolises the variety of Ecclesia: a suitable organ for every church.
