Talk of the Town
Celebrating city’s organs
Glorious music reverberated in two of Makhanda’s beautiful old churches on Sunday October 2. The fourth of five “Organ Crawls” featured the
Baptist Church (founded in 1820, the oldest in SA) and Christ Church (1876, 1881).
Some music lovers were there to hear about the history of the buildings and their organs’ impressive mechanics, but mostly to experience the capabilities of these very old instruments.
The last “Organ Crawl” on October 15 featured more grand architecture and music at the Methodist Commemoration Church and the Cathedral of St St Michael and St George.
