    Ah yes - The Wonderful Wanamaker, also a member of my top three fave instruments.

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    I don't have a top favourite list, I love which ever organ I'm listening to at the time, to be honest. I love 'em all, from the big monsters like Wanamaker or Sydney Town Hall to the tiny one manual 8 stops (1 on pedal) in Manly (Brisbane)

    That's the first time I've seen and heard the Wanamaker in action and that crescendo on the final note was incredible! Some pretty canny voicing going on there.

    My dear friend soubasse, I heartily recommend you purchase Mr Conte's CDs "Wanamaker" Wanamaker Fire" and "Midnight at Wanamaker" ... they really test out my 5.1 surround system magnificently!

    YES!!! I wholeheartedly concur with those suggestions by CT64.
