Beschreibung

The organ has been called the king of instruments. This extensively illustrated book is an introduction to the organ, its history, design, and repertoire, and will be especially useful to the general enthusiast and the novice organist. "The Organ" begins with a description of the different kinds of organ pipe and sounds they make, the mechanism and the layout and design of a typical instrument. This is followed by a brief history of the organ and a note of famous instruments still extant. The final chapter looks at the techniques of organ playing, the various forms of music written for the instrument, and major organ composers. There is a short bibliography and discography, a useful gazetteer of historic organs in Britain, and a list of contact addresses.
