Description

___________________________________
Manitoba is home to over 100 church organs, some over 100 years old. They represent the work of twenty-eight organ builders from Canada, the United States, England, and Europe.
The Organ in Manitoba portrays the history of the instruments, builders, players, and critics from the date of the earliest known installations to the 1990s, and it includes information about musical organizations such as the Winnipeg Centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. It documents over a century of changes, from concepts of tonal design to styles of musical commentary and tastes, and it includes an inventory of installations and specifications for over 100 organs. Well-illustrated with photographs and excerpts from historical reviews and other documents, The Organ in Manitoba will be of interest to musicians and historians alike.
