Interesting Question about Urakami Cathedral


Recommended Posts

Asking permission to admin to post this thread... Thanks!


My curiosity about Urakami Cathedral and Mander Organs started from the discovery of the counterpart Hauptwerk virtual sampleset by Inspired Acoustics. How? YouTube, I guess, from me being an amateur organist student and organ music fan... (Urakami Pipe Organ Samples | Inspired Acoustics)

What interested me is the webpage of the builder about the real organ and this specific phrase: "There are now moves to restore the interior and improve the acoustic."
Sourced from Urakami Cathedral, Nagasaki, Japan - Mander Organ Builders (mander-organs.com)

I am interested to learn what they meant about this, knowing the second cathedral is very different from the original cathedral. (destroyed in WWII, similar to Coventry)

Thanks for any official replies!


You can look at this Facebook page for pictures of their reconstruction research of the original cathedral: (1) 3d4kアーカイブ広島・長崎 | Facebook
