    Inkoo church in Finland has a Swedish 1989 Ã…kerman & Lund organ which has, according to a CD I have, a really fantastic organ sound.

    You know the incredibly warm high romantic organ sound?

    That is a favorite of mine. Extremely unsuited to Bach though.

    Now the word "organ". Human body has various organs too.

    So why are organs (the musical instruments) called by that name? Obviously they used to be music therapy instruments in the past.

    But that has been forgotten for long.

    I think the different sounds and tones of different organs affect different bodily organs.

    That may be the reason I like this high romantic Ã…kerman & Lund organ sound? You know, the resonance may be suited to my body?

    Church organs do definately make me feel emotional, I think its the link with wedding funerals etc My favourate organ is my willy. I have no idea what tone it likes best and Im not planning to test this out in a church.

    I would be very good to see a list of body organs and tones or music they are most affected by. Maybe someones already studied this?
