E. Power Biggs E. Power Biggs
Edward George Power Biggs (1906 - 1977) was an American organist, born and trained in England. He is noted for reviving interest in pre-Romantic organ music, advocating the use of historical instruments and original registrations, and causing many organs built in America to be a European Baroque style. He also made several recordings with a pedal harpsichord. One of his contemporaries and rivals was Virgil Fox, known for a more colorful style of playing. Regarding Biggs' obsession with historical accuracy, Fox charged that Biggs was "relegating the organ to a museum piece."
