Episode 019 — The Organ Café

I’m tired of the organ not being popular. We organists play the most complicated instrument—we deserve millions of fans and stardom. So, short of John Walter appearing on the X-Factor, what do we need to do to get the organ back to being a popular instrument? This week we journey to the Johanneskirche in Düsseldorf for some ideas.

The Beckerath organ in their sanctuary is also a beautiful example of an early German Organ Reform Movement instrument. It will be an informative pleasure to tour this organ.
