Music anecdotes book for gift ideas
In "Organ-isms: Anecdotes from the World of the King of Instruments", more than 120 men and women — from concert artists to Sunday church organists — tell of the trials and triumphs of playing what can be the most difficult instrument in the world. With 272 pages and delightful illustrations, this book is a must for anyone who has a modicum of curiosity about life aloft. Musicians of any kind will identify with the problems faced by many of these world-famous organists, and non-musicians may be astounded to hear what it takes to get a 'simple' show on the road.
"“This is one of the most - if not the most - enjoyable of books on organs and organists I have read for a very long time . . . An utterly delightful book, which is most assuredly strongly recommended” (Organist's Review)
