Organs

What distinguishes most pipe organs from all other musical instruments is the fact that they are an inseparable part of an ensemble usually a church. In an ideal world this would be a beautifully proportioned and tastefully furnished building. On the loft resides an organ that belongs so much to this building as the heart to its body. Gottfried Heinrich Gloger's organ in Kongsberg, Norway would be an excellent example for that. Period music played on such an organ in it's church will reach out to the listener’s heart in a powerful way because it makes sense in this setting.

You  won’t see an organ like that on these pages though, my organs being too small for such a great effect.  But they do come in period cloths in case they become part of that perfect ensemble.
