The Organ ~ St Saviour's Cathedral ~ Goulburn NSW by 

The magestic organ of St Saviour’s Cathedral in Goulburn … This Forster and Andrews instrument contained 43 stops and 2252 pipes when installed but has been modified several times since. It is regarded as one of the best pipe organs in Australia and one of the most sought after by organists. You could have knocked me down with a feather when the fellow who invited us in offered for me to play it! With one wrist in a brace and none of my usual music with me, I resorted to “Mine Eyes have Seen the Glory” which, to most of us, translates as “John Brown’s Body lies a Mould’ring in the Grave” … !!! Next time I’ll go prepared!

While this diversion was happening, Philip J was rat-ta-tat-tatting with his multibracketed shots and we’ll no doubt see a much more masterful photo of this instrument, along with many stained glass windows, in his portfolio any minute!

This glorious historic Church will be on our ‘must see’ list when we organise a RB rumble in the area, with a bell-tower tour, and organ recital offered by our guide, if we wish! I think we’ll need more than a couple of days in the Goulburn area!

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    What a beautiful organ and your lighting is fabulous Rosie, well done :o)x

  • Appreciated Josie – light through the miriad stained glass windows was stunning. Actually within a few days, during the equinox, light from one of the windows, at 3pm, shines exactly on a carving of Christ in a Last Supper image, above the main altar. I was kicking myself that we were missing it by just a few days.
