With no documentation, Schnitger expert Gustav Fock simply ignored Bardenfleth in his standard work, Arp Schnitger und seine Schule (1974). It was therefore a pleasant surprise when, in June 2010, archivists found the contract and a drawing of an organ among previously overlooked and uncataloged legal records in the archives of Lower Saxony. …
