In this reprint of his 1864 lecture to the British College of Organists, Mr. Rimbault observes the origins of the organ from piper�s pipe to more sophisticated versions, but more importantly he documents early references to organs and their builders in England, particularly from the 15th century to the Restoration in 1660. Appendices provide lists of organ references in records and an account of the quarrel between Father Smith and Renatus Harris. Softbound, 111 pp.
