One of the outstanding organ builders of modern times, George Ashdown Audsley is widely considered the father of the twentieth-century organ. In this book, a classic of musicology, he fully formulates principles of tonal contrast and compound flexibility and expression that have become fundamental to modern organ building. His survey of the artistic treatment of the organ case in different ages and lands is followed by descriptions of the instrument's tonal structure and explanations of harmonic-corroborating stops, timbre-creating compound stops, and the assignment of stops to particular divisions. Special construction techniques required for organs used in churches, concert-rooms, and chambers are also discussed
