The Riga Dom

I'm presently in Riga for 6 days as part of a 12 day business trip to Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and St Petersburg. Having a few hours off to do some sightseeing around the "Old Town" part of Riga today, I popped into the Dom Cathedral. The building itself is a large red brick ediface - in need of much restoration.

 

The organ (E F Walker and Co) is presently having work done - they are having the complete rebuild of the glorious case. Various ranks of pipes are now stored in some of the side chapels and the case has been taken down, save for the skeleton which holds the thing together. I understand that the majority of the instrument is still in situ. (There is a recital there on Friday evening which I'm hoping to attend.
