Open this full-colour, large-format book and step into a world of glorious architecture and fascinating history. Edinburgh’s churches and concert halls are home to a rich variety of pipe organs, and twenty-two of the most notable are surveyed here, with extensive information on both the instruments and their venues. Meanwhile twelve illustrious players – all with deep-rooted Edinburgh connections – demonstrate the instruments’ full range and versatility on four accompanying CDs.

The full gamut of the repertoire is here, and Edinburgh’s organs have the voices to match. Isn’t it time to lift the veil from some of the closest-guarded treasures of one of the world’s great cities? Includes extensive instrument and venue photography, and detailed specifications for all 22 instruments.
