Great article!

An excellent article on gifted vituosi performing on magnificent instruments!!! As a farm boy from Idaho who has seen much more of the world than I probably deserve, I would love to be at the 12 August recital. Having been priveleged to have heard some of Englands great organs, most of my exposure sadly comes from recordings. Among my favorites are those of E. Power Biggs, most notably "Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" "Bach's Fugue in G Major" and "Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor." That being said, I am rather partial to our tabernacle organists.

Save me a seat. And to think the church has yet to make even the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to fully utilizing those organs. WASP

Thoroughly enjoyed this article! As someone who started playing the organ at church at age 16 (I was asked if I played the organ, and when I said no, I was asked if I could play it in church the following week - I was terrified, but I did it), I am a huge fan of all the Tabernacle organists.
