Angels, We Haven’t Heard on High

The orgel (pipe organ) inside GPIB Immanuel, Semarang, is special. In the whole Indonesia, instruments like that are only a handful. This instrument is, like the church itself, centuries old. It has been repainted, I can see. It is adorned with four cherubs. Two blow their trumpets, and another two are strumming their harps of gold.

I wish it could be played and I could hear its heavenly sound. If the bells in the Notre Dame Cathedral is recently restored and rung after 160 years, why can’t this orgel. Let me write a letter to the church to inquire.
