Comment: Re: NEVER Make Them Cry

Comment: Re: How Much is Music Worth?
I agree wholeheartedly, I too, get chills when listening to the "grandpa" of all instruments. THere is nothing more stirring than a Bach toccata and fugue when played on a pipe organ like the Dobson. Congrats and yes, it is a blessing.  May we never forget the power of a pipe organ.
