4. Always good to find other organ music aficionados.

I'm pretty sure the picture is the organ at Passau, Germany, the largest organ in Europe. It's unclear if the recording was made there or not.

I'm actually partial to this performance by Gert van Hoef. It's quite a pleasure to watch him play, or really to watch this team play. On a fully manual instrument without presets (or electronics), it takes a team of human presets to activate the stops at the right time.

Gert has quite a few videos on Youtube. If you like organ music, I definitely recommend checking them out.
