5.0 out of 5 stars History of the Organ Vol 1 January 6, 2009
As an organ builder, this DVD is for anyone interested in the history of the organ. I now have the complete set of 4 and I find them a wonderous collections of fantastic organs, organists and sounds and video. A treasure of the King of Instraments. A MUST HAVE. Having toured Holland twice, this set includes organs that I did not see or hear, but will see and hear the next time I am in Europe.

The Four Volumes that make up this documentary are very informative, and include musical examples composed for the various periods which best show the advances in the development of The King of Instruments. The journey takes us from Italy, Spain, Germany and France to discover and listen to the changes that make up the history of this wonderful instrument.
Volume One (53 Minutes) covers the Latin, or Italian, Origins.
Volume Two (55 Minutes) covers from Sweetlinck to Bach
Volume Three (52 Minutes) covers The Golden Age
Volume Four (52 Minutes) is entitled The Modern Age

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Documentary July 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a rare and precious documentary on a little known subject: the organ. The instrument was invented by the Alexandrian hydrologist Ctsebius in the 3rd. C. BC. The earliest organs were called hydroaulos by the Greeks and hydraulis by the Romans. The instrument was played extensively throughout the Roman Empire (games, ceremonies, rituals). Later the Church adopted and adapted it for the purpose of worship. Thru the Catholic Church the organ evolved over the centuries up to the present day. This DVD is the 1st of a 4 part series. Good visuals and superb playing rounds out this documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 Volumes of Classical Organ Recitals March 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
If you want to see a history of classical organs and music spanning from Roman to modern times, this is a great way to see European talent and huge antique organs. The good news is that there's dialog explaining what you'll see, but the talking ends and then it's uninterrupted music. I especially enjoyed the concerts when played through a 2000 watt amplifier on my band gig setup and subwoofer the size of a refrigerator.
