An important example of the very first recorded music, a pipe organ played using barrels.

The rogan has four ranks of pipes, a triangle, and a drum. These are selected using the draw-knowbs on the front of the instrument.

There are three barrels, each of which holds ten tunes. Each barrel is a collection of tunes: Hymns, Dances, and Songs. Enough to get through a weekend house party.

The organ is working and retains its original modified mean-temperament tuning. The case could do with some work.
