Product Description

Inspired by a desire to encourage interest in the organ, this fascinating new book provides illustrations and explanations of myriad organ terms and components. Details of the internal workings of organs are explained--from mechanical and tubular actions to electrically controlled organs, how swell shades work, pipe design, acoustics, location, and much more. Not intended to be a how-to manual, the book still provides approachable information for organists who cooperate with professional technicians and for all of us who simply wonder how organs work.

Softbound 204 pages with 163 illustrations, glossary, bibliography, and index
