Wim Ros, ASH PhD candidate, will defend the dissertation entitled 'Fundamentum Organisandi. Het orgel in de 15e eeuw, architectuur en ontwerp' supervised by Prof. Lex Bosman and Prof. Hans Fidom (VU).
Wim Ros investigates organ design in the 15th century, including the relationship between the organ ensemble and the church interior. To do this, he has gathered extensive knowledge of the architectonic design methodology used in the 15th century, taking into account all known sources. He presents a new and coherent picture of the design methodology and an overview of organs and organ ensembles up to ca. 1530.
