From May 2019 to July 2020 the firm Van Rossum (Wijk en Aalburg) restored the Clerinx organ in the Sint-Lambertuskerk in Nederweert.  The inauguration was on Friday, 31 July, 2020;  because of the coronavirus, only a small number could be present. There was also an official ceremony planned for Saturday, 25 October, but this also had to be postponed.

In this article Rogér van Dijk, the consultant for the restoration, describes the history of the organ and the last restoration.  Cees van der Poel, who knew the instrument even before the restoration, gives an impression of the sound of the renewed organ.
