Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organise information in articles related to the pipe organ and related musical pages. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you have knowledge of or an interest in pipe organs and wish to make Wikipedia a reliable source of reference for organs, organists and organ music, please add your name to the list of participants.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Proposed miniprojects and collaborations[edit]

Aeolian-Skinner – The lead is good, but then it jumps immediately to the Harrison years, giving none of the information about the pre-Harrison time of the company. I hope someone can add something so I don't have to go looking for my ol' books on Skinner. :-) – Philippe | Talk 13:28, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Current mini-projects[edit]

Organ pipe revision[edit]

Copyedit Organ pipe, Organ console, Flue pipe and Reed pipe.


If any organist has a recording they would be happy to release to Wikipedia (or preferably Commons, the database for such things, see: Commons:Commons:Media_help), it would be a great addition to the articles on that composition and the composer: articles we already have for organ compositions may be found at: Category:Compositions for organ. If anyone has or would like to make recordings for wikipedia of any other organ compositions, it would be an easy enough task for me or someone else to write the corresponding encyclopaedic article (given that the composition is significant enough).

Adding or improving/formatting specifications in articles about, or with, specific organs. See also: Category:Pipe_organs. Please add organs and tag them with in progress when you start out doing one, to avoid more than one participant working on a list at the same time.


See Wikipedia:WikiProject PipeOrgan/Participants for participants of the project. Feel free to add yourself to the list.
