  • 6-stop Bamboo Organ

         A new 6-stop Positive Organ with bamboo pipes is now being planned on our drawing board.  Its future owner, pipe organ music lover, Mr. Cecilio K. Pedro has recently commissioned the construction of the second Bamboo Organ in the country after the 200 years old Bamboo Organ of Las Pinas.  He has given us his full trust in this project since we have been servicing the famous Bamboo Organ for more than 15 years. 

          Mr. Pedro is the President and CEO of multi awarded Lamoiyan Corporation, makers of Hapee Toothpaste and Dazz Dishwashing Paste - both leading products in their own respective fields.  He owns one of our first instrument, Opus 2 which is the Positive Box Organ with 4 stops built in 1995.  A second pipe organ with 10 stops has just been installed in the Auditorium of Lamoiyan Corporation.  It is fitted with MIDI system with a Sequencer (Record and Playback possibility) which will be used to encourage young school children that frequents his factory to appreciate the pipe organ.

          The 6-stop Bamboo Organ is his third instrument from our company and we greatly acknowledge his ideals of supporting Filipino companies like ours and his desire to encourage pipe organ music to young children.

  • Organ Music from the Manila Cathedral CD

         To promote Pipe Organ Music in the Philippines, Diego Cera Organbuilders, Inc. has created a recording label called "Diego Cera Records".  Its sole mission is to produce Audio CDs with Pipe Organ Music from the Philippines.  It is our own contribution to the preservation of historic pipe organs of the country and consequently its revival in our liturgical music. 

         The first production is "Organ Music from the Manila Cathedral".  Organist Alejandro Consolacion II brilliantly rendered his interpretation of music from Dubois, Boellmann as well as as his own compositions on the newly restored pipe organ of the Cathedral-Basilica of Manila.  The organ is considered the biggest pipe organ in South East Asia with 70 stops on 4 manuals.

         The CD is available at Diego Cera Organbuilders, Bamboo Organ Souvenir Shop and at the Manila Cathedral Office.  The price is P350.00.

  • St. Stephen Episcopal Church, Manila

         The second phase which is the full rehabilitation of the existing pipe organ and its combination with the new Johannus Rembrandt console  has been completed in January 2008.  A new casework was constructed in Neo-Gothic design to protect the pipes and give a good resonance body to the instrument where the digital and real stops can mix better.  The Hybrid organ with the Johannus Rembrandt 397 console has a total of 63 stops.

  • Johannus Organs

        With our desire to make Pipe Organ Music more accessible and more affordable to the Filipino, we have partnered with the number 1 maker of Digital Organ Console, Johannus Orgelbouw of Holland for our Pipe-Digital Hybrid Organs.  Through this cooperation, we hope to revive pipe organ music back to our churches which has been dominated by electronic keyboard for the last 30 years. 

        Through the INTONAT software provided by the Johannus, control of digital stops is quite like voicing real pipes.  It is possible to adjust various levels of each key on each digital stop making it perfect for hybrid organs.  MORE...
