This Organ Is Shaped Like a Hand

Notre-Dame des Neiges, a church in the resort town of L'Alpe d'Huez in the French Alps, has this unusual pipe organ. Jean Guillou, a master organist, designed it in 1978. The German organ builder Detlef Kleuker built it. Appropriately for a church, the shape of the organ is supposed to represent the hand of God. You can hear recordings of performances made on the organ at Pleasure of the Pipes and American Public Media
