1 hour of organ music l Classical and medieval music on the organ

The pipe organ is the largest musical instrument. It has existed in its present form since the 14th century, although similar designs were common in the Eastern Mediterranean from the beginning of the Byzantine period. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart called the organ the "King of instruments".

The introduction of organs into the Catholic Church is traditionally attributed to Pope Vitalian in the 7th century. Due to its simultaneous ability to provide a musical foundation, the organ is ideal for accompanying human voices, whether a congregation, a choir, a cantor or a soloist.

The organ has occupied an important place in classical music, especially since the 16th century. Antonio de Cabezón from Spain, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck from Holland and Girolamo Frescobaldi from Italy were three of the most important organist-composers before 1650, along with leading members of this school including Buxtehude, Franz Tunder, Georg Böhm, Georg Philipp Telemann and, above all, Johann Sebastian Bach, whose contributions to organ music continue to reign supreme.
