• 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.

Looking for a George Wright Album


New member
Of course I'll still be around, you can't get rid of me that easily!!! Besides, I'm a seaman, 2nd violin now, I've got a rank to maintain!

You guys have really been <font color="red">t</font><font color="blue">e</font><font color="green">r</font><font color="purple">r</font><font color="brown">i</font><font color="red">f</font><font color="blue">i</font><font color="green">c</font>,
and if you hadn't helped me I'm sure I wouldn't have found this album.

And to answer your question, Frederik, I found your group through a Yahoo! search. I used the keywords "pipe organ" and "forum."

Thanks again, everyone, I'll check back often!


Don't worry anymore, maybe there is a solution to your troubles. As far as I can see the name 'George Wright' is correct, George Wright was a virtuous on theater organ, he used to play the famous Wurlitzer organ. Compared to modern sequencers and synthesizers theater organs of the 50s and 60s were the most spectacular instruments of its time.
I made a quick search in GOOGLE like this: organ bird recording "George Wright" and got a lot of links, there was even a link to this forum. Some of the text in the first and only link ( web page ) I looked at says: "except that Wright produces bird squawks, screeches, and other jungle noises with the organ alone" .
I think that the bird song your grandfather is talking about just has something to do with George Wrights manipulation of the organ. I believe that you can find the singing bird on many of the available recordings, and remember that some of the biggest theater organs had huge pipes, but they were not pipe organs.


Oh my, I just discovered that there were three pages in this forum, I had only seen the first page when I posted the message, I'm sorry. I have not been reading the other answers but I believe that there are other solutions to your question about the mocking bird.


No need to be sorry...you have added a lot more to this question and a very interesting web page that we all missed.
