Rudolf von Beckerath (1907-1976) is the Hamburg organ builder, who utterly gained an international reputation after Arp Schnitger. In St. Petri, a large four-manual organ was built in 1955, which included a considerable proportion of older pipes from the 19th century. In 2006, the organ was rededicated after a comprehensive renovation and expansion by the company Alexander Schuke (Potsdam).
