Product Description

To Hear the Music follows the development of C. B. Fisk organ Opus 139 from initial design meetings through every aspect of building and testing, to a celebratory Easter Inaugural in Memorial Church, Harvard University, Fisk’s alma mater.

This documentary highlights the creation of a product built to last in a world of disposability; a model workplace, where every craftsman’s voice is heard; the Organ Wars of the early 20th century; the marriage of craft and art that the man Fisk valued above all else; and the music itself, which provides glorious accompaniment as a sum of parts comes to life.
