For those too young to recognize it, the instrument accompanying this piece is called an "ORGAN". It is really cool...sort of like 3 levels of keyboards in one instrument. But they are rare these days. :o)
If you REALLY want to see a PIPE ORGAN .. I mean a REAL one ... check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SItAmyEByE&feature=relatedIt's the Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ, from 1929-1930. It's the loudest instrument in the world.
Wow Bob, that is really something. Who woulda thunk Atlantic City would have such a thing? My mom would have loved playing that organ!I would love to hear Handel's "Messiah" on that instrument.
