• Welcome to the Pipe Organ Forum! This is a part of the open community Magle International Music Forums focused on pipe organs (also known as "church organs"), organists, organ music and related topics.

    This forum is intended to be a friendly place where technically advanced organists and beginners (or even non-organists) can feel comfortable having discussions and asking questions. We learn by reading and asking questions, and it is hoped that the beginners (or non-organists) will feel free to ask even the simplest questions, and that the more advanced organists will patiently answer these questions. On the other hand, we encourage complex, technical discussions of technique, music, organ-building, etc. The opinions and observations of a diverse group of people from around the world should prove to be interesting and stimulating to all of us.

    As pipe organ discussions can sometimes become lively, it should be pointed out that this is an open forum. Statements made here are the opinion of the poster, and not necessarily that of the forum itself, its administrator, or its moderators.

    In order to post a new topic - or reply to existing ones - you may join and become a member by clicking on Register New User. It's completely free and only requires a working email address (in order to confirm your registration - it will never be given away!). We strive to make this a friendly and informative forum for anyone interested in pipe organs and organ music.

    Many kind regards

Enjoyed the pictures ... curious what the item is that appears to slide out of the case (at the left of the music rack) in one of the pics is for.

Enjoying immensely listening to all of your recorded pieces - It must be a wonderful instrument to play in such an acoustically live building.

Listened too to the mp3 on the organ manufacturers site - impressive sound, indeed.

I'm glad You enjoyed the music. I suppose You mean the picture beneath the console pic. There is a small closet with a TV-monitor and a small loudspeaker. The monitor can be slided out and in and turned towards the player. Thus the player is able to see various parts of the church. On the console picture You can see that the monitor closet is indeed quite well hidden to the left of the music rack.
