Abstract: The Greater Organ in the Frombork Cathedral was built by the Polish organ-builder from Gdansk Daniel Nitrowskiin 1683, at the expense of Bishop Michal Radziejowski (nephew of King John III). The instrument was equipped with 27 speaking stops and costed seven thousand Florins. Emil Kemper has rebuilt the organ completely in 1934, so that now only the case with its pipes and some of the registers are of historical value. The rest is new including electro-pneumatic windchest and action, deta¬ched console (now standing on the floor of the main aisle), and coupling with the little choir organ. By the end of the Second World War the organ suffered great damage amounting to about fifty percent. A reconstruction undertaken between 1961-1969 on the order of the local Olsztyn Diocese - apart from bringing the instrument back to the working condition -went into the direction of strengthening manuals III, VI, and the pedal in order to obtain a better balance between the latter and the Great.
