Product Description

AMERICAN ORGANBUILDING as it dawned and was practiced by more than 30 Pennsylvanians from 1733 to 1900 is comprehensively treated in this book by organbuilder Ray Brunner. His work includes the builders, organists, music, details of organ construction, and the ways organs were used in secular settings and in many different church denominations. Through more than 165 photographs (many in color) and text derived from years of research, the author traces the rich heritage of essentially German baroque organs built in 18th-Century America and their assimilation into the mainstream of American organbuilding by 1900. 248 pages, 8 x 11".
