Can't see where it mentions him as an organist, although it shows him at an organ. Maybe I just missed it.

Actually, I believe all three animated musicians were intended to be J. S. Bach. He was well known for playing the organ, the violin, and harpsichord (or some equivalent one-manual keyboard thing instrument).

I assume everyone also found the switch to change the little band into a set of synthesizer players. I found this to be a fitting extra tribute to organist and electronic composer Wendy Carlos.
