MARCEL DUPRE: Cortege et Litanie for Organ and Orchestra
SAINT-SAENS: Symphony No. 3 "Organ"

What instrument is bigger than my house and louder than a 747? The organ in Royal Albert Hall. And, in this week's show we'll hear it in a work that always makes me think of a children's story about a pig.

Samuel C. of New York , NY won this week's contest by correctly ID'ing J.S. Bach, Bouree from Cello Suite #3.
