Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's greatest organ works could be divided into two groups: the pieces composed for mechanical organ (or player organ) and his "Church Sonatas". A great repersentation of his mechanical organ works would be the Fantasia in F Minor (K. 608). His Sonate in C (K. 263) is a great representation of the church sonatas.
