We’ve launched a new video series,
OrganBytes, that shows Singapore’s pipe organs and the neighbourhoods that surround them.
Featuring members of our Chapter, it promises interesting bits of Singapore’s history, music and importantly, the musical instruments themselves too.
Episode 1 began with the Laukhuff organ at the Singapore Bible College ( https://youtu.be/3zW4UJLFDAw):
Episode 2 featured Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church and its red brick facade ( https://youtu.be/ibsiKkUKWXI):
Episode 3 brought viewers to a quaint location overlooking the sea, the Norwegian Seamen’s Mission and their Starup & Son cabinet organ ( https://youtu.be/IQvUkEddg7A):
Episode 4 explored the J.W. Walker organ of Freemasons’ Hall along Coleman Street ( https://youtu.be/Gy5OYAt5E8s):
Episode 5 took a look at a cabinet organ housed in the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory ( https://youtu.be/l3TVagA6bfc):
We popped into
Dulwich College (Singapore) in Episode 6 to have a look at their Diego Cera organ ( https://youtu.be/22rEunoHWWk):
Episode 7 brings viewers to Orchard Road Presbyterian Church and their two English pipe organs — the Chancel organ and the Chapel organ ( https://youtu.be/tgub8vccSxs):
We take a break from our regular feature of organs with
Episode 8 ( https://youtu.be/Y6WPczsBA9U) to talk to Singapore’s long-serving organ builder, Robert Navaratnam, who’s been single-handedly keeping almost all of Singapore’s pipe organs in tune!
