The firm's work was still based at this stage on the Baroque organ-building tradition, but from about 1900, in common with nearly all other organ-builders, they began making use of pneumatics, electricity, and other innovations popular at the time, typified by the organs of Cavaillé-Coll. Following an 1925 organ conference in Hamburg and Lübeck, Marcussen was one of the first builders of the Organ Reform Movement, returning to the sonic, structural, and technical principles of the North-European Baroque organ, employing ultra-low wind pressures and high-pitched, vertical principal choruses characteristic of the instruments of Gottfried Silbermann and Arp Schnitger.
