In churches, cathedrals, town halls and even department stores, the 'King of Instruments' can produce a huge variety of sounds and inspire a wide range of music. Here are a few fine examples.
In Philadelphia, U.S.A. you can find the largest operational pipe organ in the world, located within a spacious 7-storey department store owned by Macy's - formerly Wanamaker's. Built for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, the organ has 28,500 pipes and has had works specially written for it by the likes of Marcel Dupré, Louis Vierne and Leopold Stokowski. The organ is played twice a day, from Monday to Saturday, and more frequently during the Christmas season.
