In this impressionistic view behind the scenes into the fascinating world of the pipe organ, master musicians reveal why they are passionate about the "King of Instruments".
World-renowned designers and craftspeople
show how the sophisticated, rarely-seen skills of â€œvoicingâ€ and molten-metal forming are used to make the organ â€œspeakâ€ with a unique sound.
The film uses music ranging from Bach to the contemporary master Stephen Paulus. Their glorious sounds are heard and â€œseenâ€ in magnificent churches,
chapels, concert halls and private homes. Also included is rare filming of a tiny instrument built about 1680 being played in a private office in London, performed especially for the film.
