List RulesLiving organists only. As long as they are still playing live, they are eligible, even if they haven't made a great album for awhile.

Similar to the harpsichord and piano, but more grand and beautiful, the organ can create a louder, richer sound with a deep bass. The sound that comes out of an organ is often projected through large, steel pipes, especially in a setting that requires the sound to project through an entire room, such as in a symphony hall or large cathedral. The organ is also trickier to master than similar instruments. Who are the greatest organists of all time?

The musicians listed here are known for being the absolute best and have received a place of prominence in the world of music because of their incredible talent on the organ.
