    and just bumped into it.  Ive been a fan of orgelwerke all my life,  so I was entranced.  

    After the concert I talked with the organist, who took me downstairs to the giant air box rooms,  with the bases of the pipes in the ceiling, and all the valves were mechanically operated  --  what they call tracker action--  

    the keyboard console had been converted to electric,  but the wires still all controlled the old valves.  The guy said it was the largest outdoor organ in the world.  It is good to hear they have kept it up.

    don't always believe what you think
