The Haalle organ was built from 1713 to 1716 by Christoph Cuntzius and was inaugurated in the 3rd May 1716, with the presence of Johann Sebastian Bach. From 1746 to 1764 Wilhelm Friedemann Bach worked in the church as organist.

The current instrument was built in 1984 by Alexander Schuke, inside the original Cuntzius case and in 2007 a new organ repair was carried by Sauer, with a general repair and intonation, and a new console. Currently the instrument has 56 registers over 3 manuals and pedal.
