Lutheran Church in Caput, Germany


This charming little Lutheran Church was the first stop on our Europe tour. The choir had given a set of handbells during a previous tour as a gift when the church was still located behind the Iron Curtain. The pipe organ in the gallery was, as of this visit, unplayable. I could not determind the name of the builder, although, judging from the casework, the builder took a bit of pride and care in his work. At this time, the church was using an electronic instrument located closer to the chancel.

Caput is a suburb of Potsdam and was the home town of Albert Einstein. His former home is now a museum in his honor. This church and its most gracious members were our base of operations for several days, as we ran out for several concerts from this location. These photos were taken during the summer of 1995.
