An organ reported by the Guangdong literary master, Qu Dajun (屈大均, 1630-1696) in a publication of 1670:
“There is an organ in the church, which is stored in a leather case. Inside are many pipes lined up like teeth, with a bellows outside; when air is blown in, sounds come out from the case. The music [played] is fast and complex, especially when all the stops are drawn [“if all eight tones sound.”] It is suitable for accompanying the liturgy, making good music.” (Qu Dajun, Guangdong xinyu [廣東新語] (Notes on the Kuang-Tung Hsin-Yu), pub. 1700.)
A Ming loyalist, Qu wrote extensively about Macau, and Guangdong province generally. This is a very early account in Chinese by a Chinese writer of a western pipe organ. It is not known if this organ (apparently the earliest organ in China to have metal pipes) was constructed in Macau, or perhaps in Manila.
