This mid-sized work of Friedrich Ladegast is one of his last examples of a three-manual mechanical action organ with manual cone-valve chests, a slider pedal chest and a Barker machine.
Except for the reconstruction of the tin front pipes and the replacement of the Lieblich Gedackt on Manual III by a Vox Celestis, carried out by Oskar Ladegast, the instrument is completely original.
The instrument was comprehensively restored by the firm of Schuke (Potsdam) in 1989-1991, providing us once again with one of the last original organs from this period. A general overhaul of the organ was completed in 2010 by the firm of Hüfken (Halberstadt), following the renovation of the church.
The organ has a wide range of tonal colours, from Baroque-like sounds to the early Romantic period with delicate and expressive flute tones, to the powerful eight foot sounds of the late Romantic. The wide range of eight and four foot stops offer many possibilities in building up the plenum.
A Ladegast speciality is the beautiful string and flute stops such as the Doppelflöte, Flauto amabile, Flauto travers, Gamba and Salicional, each with a strong individual character but with excellent mixing qualities, offering a wide array of tonal colours.
The St. John's church of Wernigerode has a middle-wet acoustics with up to 3 s of reverberation.
