Baroque Pipe Organs of Oaxaca

Season 8 Episode 803 | 26m 46s

Centuries ago Catholic religious orders from Spain created a Baroque culture among the Indians of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, overseeing the construction of elaborate churches and installing sophisticated pipe organs. Over the centuries the pipe organs ceased to function and deteriorated. An international group of specialists has restored many of the organs and treat us to concerts.
