The pipe organ is known as the King of Instruments, and for good reason.
Here's Xaver Varnus at the organ of the Berliner Dom with JS Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV 565 (In this case, the number is important. Bach wrote two Toccatas in D minor. The other one is BWV 538)
What sounds better than an organ. Well, how about four of them, played simultaneously?
Here's E Power Biggs doing just that. The original LP was available as a quadrophonic recording, which played the output of each organ in its correct place with the cathedral at Freiburg. I have the stereo version, which is fine because I don't have the hardware to be able to play quad LPs.
This is the same Bach piece featured in the previous post.
Wow, those were mind blowingly, breathtaking, stirring pieces of music Kevin. Totally awesome. I've never listened to an organ being played properly apart from briefly in church on a couple of occasions but I could listen to those and similar over and over.
If it hasn't already become apparent, I love music, with a passion, particularly that which is usually referred to as classical, so I applaud all attempts to bring such music to as wide an audience as possible.
Camille Saint-Saëns is perhaps best known for his Carnival of the Animals but, for me, his Symphony No 3 (avec Orgue) is his finest work.
Before supplying a YouTube video of the work, I'd like to bring attention to this pop song:

Shaliza: That's awesome that you have solar power. Next time I move, I hope it's to a small house/condo which has the majority of its electricity from solar power. ::080701b0-80dc-4277-b2fa-85537dc91ccc::

magicmuggle01: I'm not even sure whether or not the power I use comes from renewables, Nuclear or fossil.

magicmuggle01: Must be great to have a near endless supply of power, and didn't cost a penny in bills (except what was paid to buy equipment).

Shaliza: Absolutely and hopefully this will be the way of the future.
