What a magnificent job Tom, I trust it sounds good but did you get to hear it?
Tom Wilson: Unfortunately not, however, I see that there are some recordings featuring it, so I may have a look for a CD on my next trip.

With all those pipes the sound effects must be worth listening to Tom
Tom Wilson: I imagine they are, Chris - although I didn't get to hear it.
Magnifique orgue !
Tom Wilson: Absolutely!

Puts our church organs in the shade, Tom

What a beautiful Baroque organ with King David and all the musicians! The sounds might be heavenly.
Tom Wilson: I imagine that the sound is very good, although I haven't heard it on my various visits. I shall have to pop in during a service on my next visit.
One can only say what a beautiful instrument it is.
Tom Wilson: One of the most beautiful I have come across, Brian.

I like organ music for various reasons. So I am partial to your picture and the link provided.
Tom Wilson: Glad you like it, Louis. I, too, like organ music - especially Handel's organ concertos.
What a work of art!
Tom Wilson: Absolutely - beautifully restored!
