ZWEI POSITIVE DES ORGELBAUERS JOCHIM RICHBORN VON 1667 UND 1673: EINE DOKUMENTATION ANLÄSSLICH DER REKONSTRUKTION DES EHEMALIGEN LETTNERPOSITIVS IN ST. JAKOBI ZU LÜBECK, Mads Kjersgaard and Dietrich Wölfel. Lübeck: Verlag Schmidt-Römhild, 2005. 143 pp., ill. ISBN 3-7950-1267-8. euro 17.50. Jochim Richborn (d. 1684) is believed to have learned his craft in the shop of Friedrich Stellwagen. Active in and around Hamburg in the generation before Arp Schnitger, work on 24 organs has been attributed to Richborn. Of the four instruments by Richborn remaining today, one is a small two-manual positive organ in Skokloster, Sweden, built in 1667. This instrument was restored by the Swedish organbuilder Mads Kjersgaard in 1964 using for the time fairly enlightened practices. Another positive organ was built by Richborn in 1673 for the rood screen (no longer extant) at St. Jakobi Church in Lübeck. All interior parts of this instrument had disappeared in the distant past, leaving only the organ case, which was used as a cabinet to store old church programs and other papers. The decision was made to reconstruct the remaining parts of the Richborn positive organ, and this work was undertaken by Kjersgaard.
