Is everything bigger in Texas? Pipedreams visited the largest organ in the state at Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth to record this week's episode played live on its 191-rank Casavant organ, which is also the largest organ of French aesthetics in the world, according to the church. Fittingly, the musicians featured on the program are all American, as well as many of the composers.
