‘To Hear The Music’ Of C.B. Fisk
“Beginning in the 12th century, the pipe organ was the most complex man-made device until its mechanism was surpassed by the telephone exchange in the 19th century.”
C.B Fisk built and installed the first mechanical organ in the U.S. at Harvard University’s Memorial Church in 1967 and installed a brand-new one there — Opus 139 — in 2012.
To Hear The Music is a story about devotion to the craft, the music and the brilliance of the company’s late founder, Charles B. Fisk.
