Info on back cover:

Father Diego Cera, a Spanish missionary, spent five years - 1816 to 1821 - to build the Bamboo Organ of Las Piñas. It is the only instrument of its kind, not only in the Philippines but, most probably, in the world.

There are three records in this jacket.
One contains some of the short and lovely pieces the great J. S. Bach wrote for his wife, Anna Magdalena.
Another contains internationally known Christmas Carols.
The third presents boys of the Manila Cathedral Choir, with the Bamboo Organ, in Christmas songs of Filipino Composers.

Some background noise was unavoidable. It comes from the mechanism of the organ, one century and a half old, and from the traffic of the busy highway passing close to the church.
