                                  Music for the organ
J.S. Bach
F. Haydn C.M. Widor
O. Messiaen G. Ligeti
Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV565 (probably the most famous piece of music written for the organ ever.)
Eight pieces for musical clock (gentle, flutey-toned pieces)
Toccata from Symphonie V (an exciting work which has also become popular as a wedding piece)
Transports de Joie... from L’Ascension (a breath-taking modern-sounding piece)
Harmonies (this piece creates strange sounds by having the stops drawn out only part-way and by limiting the wind supply to the pipes – fascinating music!)
