General: In the book by Gustav Fock it is told that some organs were exported to other countries than Germany and Holland. Some were shipped to Portugal, three of which survived, two in Portugal (Faro? and Moreira) and one in Mariana, Brazil

1701: New organ by Arp Schnitger or Ulenkampf for Faro Cathedral. The organ was installed by Schnitger pupil Johann Heinrich Ulenkampf. Gustav Fock states that the organ was built by Ulenkampf in 1716. Thus it is not completely sure whether the organ was Schnitger's work or Ulenkampf's.

xxxx: Horizontal reeds were added by a Portuguese organbuilder.
