https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk4iVold0eU is a Positif instrument, hand blown, demonstrating how with manual manipulation of the bellows phrasing can be extremely natural and beautiful . . .

Hi

I came across the You Tube channel that David has linked to a while ago.  I'm fascinated by the Portatif organs of past eras.  My "wish list" would include one - maybe one day if I have some spare money (what's spare money?)  An interesting chapter in the development of the organ, and its adaptation for various roles in society.

Every Blessing

Tony

Who says the organ cannot be an expressive instrument?!

That's why I play Harmonium!  Arguably the most expressive keyboard instrument in the hands (& feet) of a player who knows how to use the "Expression" stop.

Every Blessing
