Frederick Hohman introduces us to the 1863 E. F. Walcker / 1947 Aeolian-Skinner organ at the Methuen Memorial Music Hall in Methuen, Massachusetts, where this famous organ was moved from Boston�s Music Hall at the turn-of-the-century to a spectacular building designed for it by famed architect Henry Vaughan. Once owned by Ernest Skinner whose organ factory was located in an adjacent building, the organ was rebuilt by Aeolian-Skinner in 1947 and features an annual season of organ concerts. Hohman performs works of deGrigny, Mulet, Rachmaninoff and Wagner�s Ride of the Valkyries. He and Robert Newton of the Andover Organ Company (curators of the organ) tour the organ�s 6,027 pipes behind the impressive case carved of American black walnut. This Special Edition of Midnight Pipes also contains a 14-minute fast-paced review of the first 20 Midnight Pipes episodes, and contains additional audio and video tracks related to Methuen Memorial Music Hall. Subtitles can be accessed in English, French, Spanish and other languages.
