The Sunday Traveler~ Morelia Cathedral, Part 2

The Sunday Traveler mentioned in last week’s post that the cathedral in Morelia, Mexico, brought back memories of Notre Dame in Paris when I was there last December. And very incredibly, like that moment in December,  walking into this cathedral in Mexico in July, the organ was playing other worldly music.

The organ here is the largest in the Western hemisphere, and was imported from Germany in 1905. The music playing the morning I was there was what seemed like someone practicing beautiful soft scales, ranges of notes, and what made it especially wonderful that I was standing at the back of the huge church by a guide that was giving a tour to a small group of people pointing things out within the church. My eyes flowed over the expanse of church on the waves of music.

The cathedral hosts a yearly International Organ Festival of Morelia, that I believe is in November sometime. I hope to go one year very soon.

Until next week. Travel on.

    Beautiful photos. Hearing music in churches, especially when it’s unexpected, adds so much to the atmosphere and joy. I’m not religious, but I appreciate the exquisite beauty of many old churches and religious rituals, and I can understand how they bring people closer to a spiritual place — however they define it.
