In 1834, a new single-manual organ was built by Theodoor Smet (1782-1853) from Duffel. There are no exact details about the organ. In 1859, Jean Corneille Charles Delhaye carried out a first rebuild, during which some stops were changed.
In 1891, the organ was then extended by Petrus Stevens-Vermeersch to an instrument with 2 manuals and the case was arranged in two parts to the right and left of the west window.
The restoration concept: The reconstruction of the 1834 state by T. Smet is the most feasible and historically justified. To this end, the divided organ case must be reassembled into a whole, with the altered elements either removed or restored. The restored organ will once again be a single-manual organ, as in the past.
The console, the action and the wind supply will have to be rebuilt according to the model of the existing Smet organs.
