Six Organs of the Royal Basilica of Mafra, Portugal

The blogger of the Portugese blog, Tribuna, sent some news and video to the NLM of a restoration which had been in progress for many years, which restored the six organs of the Basilica of the Royal Palace of Mafra in Portugal.

Two concerts in May took advantage of the six organs. (While you are watching the videos, I would point out to our more architecturally inclined, the standards on the balustrade similar to those found in the Sistine Chapel and particularly Santa Maria Maggiore's Cappella Paolina; take note as well as the beautiful hanging lamps.)
