About the Author

Ronald Ebrecht is Artist in Residence and University Organist at Wesleyan University.


In Mr. Ebrecht's book we have the first exhaustively researched and documented account of a plan to build the world's largest organ in the world's most famous church. There is also a plethora of historic and relative information regarding organ builders, organists, venues, composers, and dignitaries in several countries during the mid-late 19th century. This book should be in every academic library, and anyone involved in teaching, studying, or simply learning about pipe organs will find it a fascinating as well as a significant read. -- Frederick Swann, University Organist and Artist Teacher of Organ, University of Redlands
Ronald Ebrecht's book about the Cavaille Coll Organ Project in Rome is a must for every pipe organ enthusiast, organ player, organ builder, and everyone interested in this monumental building. The story behind the vision of one of the greatest organ builders of the world, who conducted an organ project for one of the greatest church buildings of the world, gives insight to a previously unknown dimension. -- Philipp C.A. Klais, organbuilder and president of Orgelbau Klais, Bonn Germany
This is a very well-researched book about a spectacular and unfortunately not realized organ project. Illustrating the historical context, Ebrecht makes the reader understand the path to this terrific project and the reasons why it did not happen. An excellent reading that tells us a fascinating story of a genius organ builder and his time. -- Stefan Sturzer, Managing Director, Glatter-Goetz Orgelbau
