Organ competition. . .

Independent Lens and PBS put out this documentary about a Canadian Organ Competition that is worth your time to watch.  But as you watch it, remember to give thanks for your own faithful parish organist. If you do not have one, then work at find one or raising up one by paying for lessons in exchange for service playing.  If you want to preserve the King of Instruments in service to the praise of our Mighty God, which is both what the organ is best suited for and what best can accompany the sound of many voices in song, then don't be cheap about the musician or the instrument and do your part.  We need organists, good organists, and good organs.  It is not for them, but for us.  The pipe organ is at its best in worship and we are the beneficiaries.
