Pipe organs speak, but what do they say? What does life around pipe organs look like? What have they represented, how have they been used and what can they tell us today?

For centuries, the pipe organ has provided the soundtrack for much of European life. In Northern Europe, the 17th and 18th century saw the birth of a vibrant organ culture. By studying it, can we better understand the voice of the instrument in the culture of today?
