Notes & Reviews:

The Marcussen organ, built in 1939, in Vårfrukyrkan in Skänninge was the first large organ in Sweden built entirely according to ideals of the so-called "Orgelbewegung", or Organ Reform Movement. The Organ Reform Movement was a trend to return to older organ-building methods; the aim was to create new genuine and beautifully sounding instruments for use in both church services and concerts, especially German baroque music. This ideal was also an important source of inspiration for many composers during the 1900s. When the organ in Skänninge was built, valuable material from the former organ was successfully reused. It stands out as one of the most important instruments of its age in Sweden.
