The Morelia Cathedral Organ

The Morelia Cathedral Organ

Michoacan, Mexico, 1905: the largest organ in the Western Hemisphere at the time is imported from Germany and installed in the Morelia cathedral. The same organ, the same cathedral in 1956: cathedral organist Alfonso Vega Nunez sits down to play a Bach Fantasia and Fugue, a "little" Fugue and a Vivaldi concerto. Result: vast majesty, divine inspiration.
