Het ORGEL 98 (2002), nr. 4, xx-xx [summary]
On 10 March 2001, the new Mense Ruiter organ in the Reformed Church at Enter was inaugurated. The instrument is based on the work of Freytag and Van Oeckelen, two Dutch organ builders from the late 18th and the 19th centuries. The instrument is the third organ of the church: it succeeds a Van Eldik organ (1900) and a Van Leeuwen organ (1954). Stef Tuinstra was the consultant.
The organ has 25 stops on two manuals and pedal. At the request of the local organ committee, a Viola di Gamba and an Unda Maris were added to the ‘Bovenwerk’ (manual II). The front was designed by Dolf Tamminga in a traditionally oriented style. All in all a very beautiful organ.
