Organist and composer Diane Bishhas been one of the greatest advocates of the pipe organ in recent history. Not since the time of the so-called golden age of organ building and the “superstars” like Virgil Fox and E. Power Biggs has anyone had more success in bringing the organ to large audiences. Through her development and broadcast of the weekly “The Joy of Music” television series, Diane shared with the world a sort of National Geographic of the pipe organ—taking us to see and hear pipe organs places we will probably never visit.

I made a lunchtime visit to the pipe organ I built at Mogadore Christian Church in Mogadore, Ohio. It was a hot summer day, one of the few we've had this year. I decided to record a piece that I have long thought would be great on an organ... Hogwarts Hymn from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
