Knox Organ

I have shown you the chapel at Knox College at U of Toronto before (HERE) and during the Doors Open event tours of the college were given which included a performance on the organ in the chapel. It is a Wolff organ built in the North German baroque style and installed here in 1991. A very talented young woman played us a selection of Bach pieces and the sound was marvelous!
