CBC Ideas, Ode to the Organ

It's the world's largest, most complex - and powerful - musical instrument. The pipe organ lifts us out-of-the-ordinary and fills us with awe. From cathedrals to arenas, Eitan Cornfield pulls out all the stops to explain why organs still matter in our increasingly secular world. Eitan speaks to organists and organ lovers about their fascination with the instrument, including concert organists Gillian Weir, Cameron Carpenter, William O'Meara, former editor at The New York Times, Craig Whitney, Grand Court Organist of the Wannamaker Organ at Macy's in Philadelphia, Peter Richard Conte, historian Barbara Owen, and Jacquelin Rochete, Artistic Director of organ builders Casavant Frères (CBC)
