Prepare to hear ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' like you've never heard it before ...

Musician Alexey Rom has painstakingly created a custom player scroll to get this 100-year-old Hooghuys organ to play the much-loved pop song.

And it is truly beautiful!

The 1914 mechanical fairground organ - which was built in Belgian - belts out the tune with its own unique and distinctive sound.

In the footage, the organ, which is intricately decorated with a number of portraits, is shown being fed a strip of card punctured with musical data and registration controls. 

Very impressive.
