Howard Goodall’s Organ Works

Howard Goodall’s Organ Works

In Organ Works Howard unveils the secret and the not-so-secret life of the world’s most misunderstood musical wonder – its passion, its murky past, and its madness…This sweeping odyssey through the Northern Hemisphere, whilst being grippingly informative, is anything but reverential. Howard investigates the organ’s turbulent history as the servant of two masters, sacred and secular. From Mediaeval cathedrals to the Tower Ballroom,Blackpool; from Tyrolean castles to the Jazz Café, he follows its relentless progress from holiness to hipness, from classical simplicity to outrageous eccentricity.
