Pipe organs and government regulations
Good evening, friends,
I've got a question. Background: a couple of years ago, a friend of mine emailed me an article that said that the pipe organ is running afoul of environmental regulations in parts of Europe, principally (pardon the unintentional pun!) because of the lead alloys in the metal pipes. I wondered about the credibility and veracity of the article at the time, but I didn't pursue verifying it. Instead, I more or less forgot about it until today. So, I'm putting up this post, primarily for our friends in Europe, but of course welcoming responses from anyone who might have some insight into this. Is there any truth to the assertion? Are pipe organs transgressing environmental regulations?
Thanks, and "Happy New Year," Everyone!
