I am by no means a pro with Hauptwerk but I made a mock up of "where are we going" from Interstellar to kind of show what the VI can do. I was just using the free version of Hauptwerk. I believe it to be the best sounding and has the most control.

I was inspired by that Intersellar recording to (very quickly) knock up Aria Pipe Organ doing Koyaanisqatsi:

You'll have to sing-a-long with a deep voice singing "Koyaanisqatsi" for the proper atmosphere!

Revisiting this thread to ask a related question...

I recently downloaded Hauptwerk just to play around with the free version to see what it's capable of. First of all: wow! Even the free set that it comes with is amazing and puts most if not all the other organs I have to shame. This is making me think that eventually I will purchase one of the full versions, although I can't justify it just yet.

My question is: are there other sample sets that are compatible with the free version? I have browsed through their free instruments section and downloaded a couple that say the license is "free" but then when I go to install them it says they are only compatible with the licensed version of Hauptwerk. So it seems the "free" designation means simply the set doesn't cost money, not that you can use it with the free version, as I had originally thought. I assume there are other sets which are both free and can be use with the free version...

Can GrandOrgue load free type Hauptwerk samples? I forget what I was messing with when I tried out organs before I converted them to Kontakt, but I thought it was Grand Orgue.

Yes, there's quite a few. What the free version can load is mostly limited to the cap on the RAM you can use (size of the library).
You can get around this a bit by not loading all stops/ranks from a library, but there's a limit.

And once again: read the EULA's carefully. A lot of sets that work with the free version aren't allowed to be used commercially. As is the free version of Hauptwerk itself.

Start by checking out the free instruments on the Hauptwerk website
https://www.hauptwerk.com/downloads/instrument-downloads/

The demo versions of Sonus Paradisi's organs
http://www.sonusparadisi.cz/en/blog/category/free-stuff/

The free organs at Dutch Virtual Organ site
http://www.pbrd.nl/index.php/vo/downloads/category/2-hw-4-versie

And Piotr Grabowski's free organs
https://www.piotrgrabowski.pl/

Soni Musicae also has some great harpsichords and such in Hauptwerk format
http://duphly.free.fr/

Take note of the required RAM for each organ and if they'd fit in the free version of Hauptwerk (1.5GB). You can cram a bit more in memory by omitting stops, release samples or shortening release samples etc.

My recommendations for the free version:
2007 Prib Chamber Organ
Zlata Koruna Mini
Oosterwijtwerd
Wildervanck
Van Oeckelen Oude Pekela
Melcer Chamber Music Hall (16bit version)
Lędziny (16bit version)
Kdousov
Menesterol, Smecno and Velesovo demo's with memory saving

Thanks, yeah I have been enjoying the Melcer and Ledziny organs quite a bit as well as the Oosterwijtwerd. Pitea School of Music is also a good one.

I'll check out the others you mention. Piotr Grabowski's collection looks AWESOME! It's a shame I would need the full version of Hauptwerk to play most of them, but the ones I can use are outstanding. I would like to buy Hauptwerk at some point but I feel I should get my composition chops up to snuff so I can justify the expense. But even the St Anne's organ that comes with the program is pretty damn nice.

I agree...
Remember, you can fit a few more of Piotr organs if you play with the settings a bit.
Shortening or removing release samples, selecting lower bitrate and removing some stops.
