S08 Ep35: Too Many Keyboards, Part 3


“The organ is the grandest, the most daring, the most magnificent of all instruments invented by human genius.” – Honore de Balzac


The pipe organ is a marvelous instrument.  More accurately, pipe organs are marvelous instruments.  Because each one is unique.  Each is custom built to fit the space in which it resides.  Today we have wonderful works and performances by women for the organ.
