Each of the pipes in a pipe organ can speak at only one pitch, one volume, and one timbre (tone color). By definition, then, a pipe organ is a community of voices, each adding its unique sound to the musical conversation. This program illustrates the rich diversity of compositional voices for organ across generations and geography.
