    Newcastle Upon Tyne (my greatfather hometown) harbors the older ever existing Church Organ, and ELP had the highest honor of using it for their 'Pictures At An Exhibition' first live recording and official release.
    The highest moment on that memorable show was for me without any doubt the thrilling and freakin' piece 'Promenade' played by Emo on that Organ. Awesome!

    Every time that I listen to the beautiful 'The Only Way' I just forget to pay attention to the lyrics. Anyway, regardless of whatever reason it"s usually easier for doing that than to anyone whose mother language is English.

    In Renaissance's beautiful 'Black Flame' there is an interesting pipe organ tones underlying the acoustic guitar notes on the first section, but the organ becomes briefly prominent on the final section. To my ears , the organ presence is essential to the intense atmosphere of this great song.

    Something by the master of masters Ennio Morricone is obviously worth mentioning here. Quite easy to pick something from him, so the first Moricone's that I heard today gets posted here, it's a lovely song with a gorgeous pipe organ intro and a tremendous finale!

    Metamorfosi - "La chiesa delle stele" is a 2011 live album with very heavy use of church organ, taken from a 2004 concert. I like it a lot, but it probably wouldn't be something that resonates with everyone.

    Koyaanisqatsi was on TCM last night. Wonderful film. Wonderful score by Philip Glass, with some additional music by Michael Hoenig.

    The whole song! In fact, I think it might be the only keyboard on the sang. Played live with the band through the swiss phone lines...

    I thought it was one of the first wireless recordings.

    Such a wonderful track and composition. Holds it's own with just Annie's voice and the organ.

    Wasn't this song played at the end of Stone's "The Doors" where Morrison is dead in the bathtub in the final scene?

    Reinaissance's Cold Is Being is so moving with Annie's amazing voice & church organ. Though, the composition is a brutal rip-off of Albinoni's Adagio for Organ and Strings, actually well-know piece of Classical music that was used in the films - including the 1991 film The Doors - above mentioned bathtub scene and the final Père Lachaise Cemetery scene - which feautures The Doors' cover of Albinoni's Adagio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJxElvThebY




    Regardless of copyright thing, Albinoni should have received some note in Renaissance's Turn of the Cards the album liner-notes.
    Unlike Renaissance, The Doors didn't hide from their fans that the composition is Adagio by Albinoni; thus, they credited him in the title of the song, which is also know as The Severed Garden:



    Wow, I'm sick of doubt
    Live in the light of certain
    South
    Cruel bindings.
    The servants have the power
    Dog-men and their mean women
    Pulling poor blankets over
    Our sailors

    I'm sick of dour faces
    Staring at me from the tv
    Tower, I want roses in
    My garden bower; dig?
    Royal babies, rubies
    Must now replace aborted
    Strangers in the mud
    These mutants, blood-meal
    For the plant that's plowed.

    They are waiting to take us into
    The severed garden
    Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful
    Comes death on a strange hour
    Unannounced, unplanned for
    Like a scaring over-friendly guest you've
    Brought to bed
    Death makes angels of us all
    And gives us wings
    Where we had shoulders
    Smooth as raven's
    Claws

    No more money, no more fancy dress
    This other kingdom seems by far the best
    Until it's other jaw reveals incest
    And loose obedience to a vegetable law.

    I will not go
    Prefer a feast of friends
    To the giant family.
