BBC on Saving US Pipe Organs

BBC America had a great segment on the good work of the people at Organ Clearinghouse. When churches purchase a new organ, they salvage the old one, refurbish it, and try to find a home for the instrument. This work not only preserves historic instruments, it provides less wealthy congregations with fine instruments that will sound better and last much, much longer than any electric organ will.

You can visit the website of Organ Clearinghouse here.
