Verzi - Chiesa parrocchiale San Andrea Apostolo

The organ in the parish church of Verzi is a fine example of the Lombard organ school of the nineteenth century. It is placed in the choir loft above the main entrance within a wooden case placed against the wall, with a front of three bays each by a spire. The mouths of the pipes, with the upper lip in miter and point cantilever, are aligned.

Built by Giacomo Locatelli in 1892, it presents a chromatic keyboard of 58 keys (C1-A5) with the division between bass and treble between B2 and C3 and a flat pedalboard with 20 pedals (C1-G2). It consists of the following stops:
