The portative organ is an instrument that was very popular between the 13th and 15th century. A small organ that the player plays with one hand on the bellows and the other on the keyboard. Although many people think of it as a keyboard instrument, the essence of its sound is that of a wind instrument. By operating the bellows, the air pressure can be controlled in infinitely expressive and dynamic ways.
