About

Featuring music by Frescobaldi, de Cabezón, de Arauxo, Couperin, Sweelinck, Buxtehude, J.S. Bach, Widor, Reger, Franck, Alain, Messiaen

The organ is one of the oldest, most complex and most glorious musical instruments known to men. This four part series outlines the history of this magnificent instrument, ranging from the beauty of the sound to the wealth of music written for it, and encompassing not only the craftsmanship involved in building such a complicated (and often ornate) structure, but also the wonderful settings in which these instruments now reside.
