It was a tad early, even by today's ridiculous standards--before Hallowe'en, even!--but nevertheless, what a nice way to get the shopping season off to a good start, and with a choir of 630! Although it takes place in a Macy's, the store was originally Wanamaker's, a grand old Philadelphia institution. Mr. Wanamaker had an organ installed, one of many that is claimed to be the largest in the world (any organ experts please chime in here with your thoughts), and directed that daily recitals be given for the entertainment of his customers. Macy's, bless their hearts, after absorbing Wanamakers, continues that tradition and judging by the sound on this video, keeps the instrument in superb repair. Enjoy!
