The Pipe Organ in China Project was established in 1989 at Hong Kong Baptist University. For three decades it has collected information about the pipe organ in China, through both historical inquiry as well as documentation about the new instruments in China today and the emergence of a pipe organ culture. With the publication (in December 2017) of Keys to the Kingdom: A History of the Pipe Organ in China by Prof. David Francis Urrows, and the closure of the Hong Kong office of the Project in the summer of 2018, this website now continues this research and the dissemination of data onward into the Project’s fourth decade.

New information arrives every month, new instruments are installed, old questions are answered, and new mysteries arise… Please check back as this site is built and enlarged; we welcome you and seek your support and interest in this fascinating, never-ending story of East-West music relations.
