LUTHER!!! This guy is all over. He's my hero.

Our next stop was to St. Jakobi Kirche where we saw this amazing Arp Schnitger Organ. This organ was pretty amazing. First off, THE J.S. Bach applied for a job here and was rejected. What a stupid thing for the church to reject him. Imagine what his music may have looked like if he had gotten to work on these Schnitger organs!!! WOW. They took the fascade pipes out in WWI for the war. Then in WWII they took the insides of the organ and hid it. The case was destroyed, but the guts of the organ were safe. How cool is that? Numerous adjustments and changes have been made to this organ over time.
Heaven on Earth
Also went to a music school to see some organs and to an organ concert and dinner after which was AMAZING.
Tomorrow we head out of Hamburg, so not sure if I'll have internet at the next hotel or not.
