グラスハープ

Bach's most famous organ piece arranged for glass harp.

Free sheet music for this can be found here: http://www.classical-scores.com/free/bach-toccata-and-fugue-in-d-minor-bwv-56...

A theory has recently (1981) been put forth that J. S. Bach did not write this piece. A brief summary of the supporting evidence for this theory can be read here:

To listen to a good organ version watch Kurt Ison, Sydney Town Hall.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FXoyr_FyFw

Or Karl Richter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd_oIFy1mxM

Also arranged for symphonic orchestra for the famous Walt Disney cartoon "Fantasia" in 1940. Can be viewed at:

A very interesting version with a bar-graph score (midi sequencer score) gives you a visual idea of the voicing of this piece. watch:
