The Portative Organ (pictured left) Formed a common part of daily life in Medieval Europe. This Small pipe organ was designed with the idea of being so portable that most of them could be carried and played by the same person, even while walking. This type of small Pipe Organ flourshied between 1100 a.d. and 1500 a.d. and then suddenly disappeared.
A few organ builders in the last few decades have begun building them again,, and among them is Sean Koreski Located in Vancouver, WA, USA. As a long time Professional musician and Instrument builder, he understands the need for compact practical instruments,, ones that are truly Portable Organs!! The volume of his Organs are plenty to accompany other instruments and be played both indoors and outdoors yet still be light and compact enough to be taken anywhere,, all without sacrificing the quality of tone!
