Lo strumento, con le sue 5.275 canne raggruppate in 72 registri, è il maggior organo a canne islandese. Ha due consolle, entrambe con quattro tastiere di 58 note ciascuna, e pedaliera concavo-radiale di 32 note: la consolle in cantoria è a trasmissione mista, meccanica per i manuali e il pedale ed elettrica per i registri e le combinazioni; la consolle in navata, installata nel 1997, è integralmente a trasmissione elettronica.

The Organ by MacClaus

Reykjavík’s white-concrete church Hallgrímskirkja dominates the skyline. In contrast to the eye-catching outside, the Lutheran church’s interior is puritanically plain. The most startling feature is the vast pipe organ by the german organ builder Johannes Klais. It has mechanical action, four manuals and pedal, 102 ranks, 72 stops and 5275 pipes. It is 15 m tall and weighs 25 tons. Its construction was finished in 1992.

Curves and Edges by MacClaus

Hallgrímskirkja is the largest church in Iceland. Located on the hill Skolavorduholt, overlooking the centre of old Reykjavík and the surrounding mountains. The church was designed by Guðjón Samúelsson – construction work began in 1945 and ended in 1986. The church is built of concrete, coated in a rough cast with white granite for protection from the elements, and for the connection to Icelandic nature. The roof is covered with copper.
