Never assume Digital Music is better
Many people have the mistaken impression that digital music is better than traditional pipe organ music. It may be less expensive and seem to sound just as good up to a point, but there is no comparison when you are looking for a full-bodied, pure music experience.
The sound created by pipe organs is rich and powerful because of the many levels and layers afforded by the assortment of pipes and the stops that control the combinations used. Each pipe contributes its unique vibrations whereas the multi-level sound produced by a digital instrument is carried by just one wave. That individual wave quickly loses strength and definition and lacks depth.
When voices or other instruments accompany the organ, only the quality of pipe organ sounds stands up to challenge without having to compensate with increased volume.
To enjoy the best of both options, organs combining traditional pipes and digital sound have become popular but the bulk of the music is derived from the pipe organ settings.
A Pipe Organ can fit in your Home
Although they are rather expensive, it is possible to have a pipe organ built for any home. There was actually an early form of pipe organs called the hydraulis which was popular in the homes of wealthy Greeks and Romans. Then in the 17thand 18thcenturies, models similar to modern styles could be found in the homes of noblemen and aristocrats. Today, this availability is important for musicians who may not have access to practice facilities at convenient times but is also perfect for the true music lover who loves to fill the air with incomparable music.
Unlike the largest pipe organs with over 30,000 pipes, home pipe organs create rich, deep sound with approximately 350 pipes.`
