  • Geschiedenis van het Engelse orgel

Het boek is in het Engels. From the publisher: This standard work on the history of organs built in England between AD 900 and the present day takes full advantage of recent research and new discoveries. It describes the most significant instruments of each period together with details of their builders, set against a background of changes in music and liturgy. Technical developments are described in an easily understood manner, and links with other schools of organ building are made clear for the first time. The illustrations, many of which have not been published before, show significant instruments in their architectural setting. The author’s experience in organ building gives the account all the benefits of first-hand experience. Written in an elegant, entertaining and informed manner, the book has proved itself to be a vital and much-needed addition to current organ literature.
