Epistle Organ (1736), Mexico City Cathedral

I know it's Lent, and thus (in the best of all possible parishes) the organs are mostly silent, but Mexican organs--even somewhat out-of-tune ones--are always a delight, and a testament to a venerable tradition in that country of Spanish-style organ-building and associated music that we are largely unaware of north of the border.


  1. Oh those wonderful flentrop reeds!! I love that Catholic cultural organ - BOTH sweet (strings) AND spicy (reeds). Can't wait to play the mexican and south american organs someday!!!

  2. Sort of a drone going on... I like.
