Notes and Editorial Reviews

Manila's suburb of Las Piñas boasts the world's only organ with pipes made from bamboo. The fascinating story of the organ from its conception by the Spanish missionary Fr. Diego Cera in 1816 through many competent and incompetent repairs and restorations to its complete restoration by German organ builders is related in the programme notes. As well as demonstrating the full potential of the instrument with different solo pieces and Handel's Organ Concerto in G minor, Douglas Lawrence interviews Fr. Leo Renier (who was responsible for the restoration of the organ) on a bonus second CD.

The bonus CD also includes a QuickTime movie suitable for playback on Windows and Macintosh computers.

“pleasing and
Read more sensitive playing ... a most interesting CD to listen to ... It should be a MUST in the collections of all organ music lovers.” — David Vann, The Organ Voice, Organ Society of Queensland

“a most interesting and satisfying production. Well worth adding to your collection.” — Greg Crawford, Organ Music Society of Adelaide
