The Pipe Organ in China Project Website: Updates for May 2021

23 May 2021

New photos have been added to HKG1935, and CHD2019

One of our colleagues happened to stop by the Chapel of Christ the King in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, and sent us a couple of photographs of HKG1930, now under renovation. It is heartening that at least one of William Charlton Blackett’s locally-built instruments is being restored in this way. There are several more candidates that should also be considered for this as part of Hong Kong’s organ heritage.

Prof. Urrows reports that he participated and gave a paper on François Ravary and the Jesuit Musical Multi-Culture of Mid-nineteenth Century Shanghai at the international symposium, Missionary Activities and East-Asian Collections, sponsored by the Science and Research Center Koper, Slovenia. This was of course held virtually, via Zoom. It was recorded and when the link for the video is available it will be posted here.
