No WAY, Jose!!! That thing has = probably got a 10' high Spencer cement mixer driving it. Severance Hall is the quintessential orchestral/symphonic organ, second only to the FIVE-manual = E.M.

The "Little = Organ Book" is a sort of a one volume abridged version of "Ars Organi". LOB = seems to still be in print but I'm not sure about AO.   Cheers, TommyLee

I would even go one step further in such a discussion of Gould's organ recording: He doesn't play the organ pianistically; he plays it like Glenn Gould!
