NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Played by E. Power Biggs, organist of the Harvard Church of Brookline, the Germanic Museum's new "Classical" organ, thought to be the only one of its type in this country, made its debut in a public concert on Sunday afternoon, including several of Bach's most famous preludes and fugues in the program.

Recently installed in the Romanesqe Hall of the Museum, the instrument is constructed along the lines of the great Silberman organs of the eighteenth century.

The organ contains 1,447 pipes, ranging from a large sixteen-foot pipe giving low C, to a small three-quarters inch pipe giving high C.
