This Bursens 95 Key book-operated dance organ was built in Belgium in 1947 by Arthur Bursens who operated a smaller business than Decap and Mortier. The principle behind the business was the same - the building of organs to play dance tunes in venues ranging from small cafes to large dance halls. Normally, to save the owner and operator having to constantly change music, an organ was supplied either with rolls having several tunes, or with an endless book, in a circular cage. Now at St Albans Organ Museum near London, this organ plays from single books of music, and is heard here (with kind permission to record video) playing several tunes for your enjoyment, on Sunday 21st November 2010:
