    I bet that had the organbuilder voiced the 64' on 10" wind pressure, the effect would have been all the more stunning.

    I must say - while the contratrombone is noisy it's not quite as overpowering as it's nearest neighbour (32' trombone). However, you can destinctly hear it's rattle without doubt.

    That's Toccata & Fugue! I'm trying to learn this piece myself and enjoy
    every minute of playing it. Especially around early fall. After New Years,
    I will be getting back on it with my little wicks organ at the church.
    I don't play it that well yet like in your video that you have on the web
    page that I'm listening to right now. I love it! That is a beautiful
    organ in the video. It looks like a musical castle or palace.

    Judy - the organ is indeed very beautiful, and enormous. In fact when people enter the town hall they often gasp as it's just so wide (and tall).

    Contra, you don't know it but I'm a big fan of the pipe organ and I
    play one myself. I just marvel at the little one at my church because
    I can look up at it while I play this pretty instrument and talk to it.
    You see what it looks like under my name. When I'm having a hard time
    learning a song or piece on it I can almost hear it laugh. When I've
    done a good job with a piece I can almost hear it smile and I smile
    back saying "We did it!" It's become my big friend is right in the heart of
    the church I belong to. Yes I'm an enthusist which is a better word.
    I'm really in awe when I see a pipe organ like the one you just showed
    in the video. Thanks for having it. I would like to hear what you say
    about that!

    Hi Judy - can you send a picture of the organ you play, the one on your avatar is so small as to foil my feeble eyes!

    I tried to stretch the picture to put into the art gallery but it didn't
    work. Sorry! This computer is being a pain in the kuester.
    You might have to come to Madisonville,Ky someday and look
    up this beautiful church. I tried!
