A Pipe organ is a keyboard instrument that makes sound by forcing air through large wooden pipes or metal.The bodies are often found in churches,and there is a vast repertoire of sacred music for organ.I have seen that organ 3 times I always go to the macy's just to see the organ I thought Saint Patricks Cathedral in New york had the biggest pipe organ.

I purchased a keyboard player dream, it is very good and easy to use. I like to use it and I like pass more time with it. There are some artificial musics recorded with musics, also you can hear it with or without background musics.

The Atlantic City Auditorium organ is usually thought of as the largest in the world - 7 manuals, 449 ranks of pipes, 33,114 pipes including 9 32 foot ranks and a true (not acoustic ) 64 foot rank. However it is only partly functioning at the moment.
