    Stockholm City Hall Organ

    This is a rare gem of an organ that is way too seldom heard - A masterwork by Walcker that was lovingly restored and augmented by Harrison:

    What a magnificent Beast as they say. Great sound and with just right amount of reverb for me. Thanks for posting. Sad about it's use however.

    What an extraordinary instrument and an unusual housing. Sounds as though it speaks well into the room though - and what a magnificent room it is! Thanks for the vid, enjoyed that.

    Hi Soubasse,

    I was just thinking about you - hoping that everything is alright with you and yours - Yep, the City Hall "Big Room" is a nice space for great organ recitals...
