The pipe organ is the largest of all wind instruments and consists of four ranks of pipes – the diapasons which are the backbone of the organ, the reeds, which mimic the sound of brass instruments, the strings and the flutes. The flutes rank, which is my favourite includes stops for clarinet, oboe, bassoon and many different kinds of flutes. The electronic organ does a good job, but is not quite as good as a pipe organ. It is, however, substantially cheaper and can be moved. Location of organ: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Temple Park Road, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England, UK. I have been playing the organ there for the past twenty years and previously played in churches in London and Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
