Sheet music

The Do-organ is attractive for children to build, but of course also to make music together. That is possible, because although it’s small, it’s a real organ with two octaves and two different ranks of pipes. Here you will find suitable compositions, specially written for the Do-organ.

Winners Orgelkids Composition Contest

On the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of Orgelkids there was a Composition Contest for composers who wanted to write new music or arrangements for the Do-organ.

The Do-organ has a keyboard with 2 octaves: c’d’-c”’ (without cis’). Pitch a’= 440 Hz. The organ has two stops of wooden pipes: open (4’) and stopped (8’). The organ is winded by hand-operated bellows.
