Piped Music

A vast instrument capable of a huge range of sounds, the organ has been used to accompany singing in churches for hundreds of years. A traditional organ works by blowing air into a series of pipes, which vary in size and so produce notes of different pitches. Each note is controlled by one of a series of keys and pedals, operated by the organist's hands and feet.
