'Tis the season to hear the music

Churchgoers at this 120-year-old church are a lucky lot. At every Sunday morning service, a privileged congregation at this Gothic Revivalist church on buzzing Colaba Causeway gets to listen to soothing tunes from Mumbai's only operational pipe organ.

This Conacher Organ from Huddersfield, UK was acquired over 100 years ago and is still used to play one hymn at Sunday mass; the old man can't take a second tune. Drop by to marvel at this towering instrument, unseen in today's churches or even at live choral performances.
This church, once bustling with British military and naval officers who were stationed in the area is a miniature museum that remains a silent witness to decades of the city's vibrant history, with plaques, stunning stained glasswork and ornate carvings in its womb.
The ever-gracious parish priest here will happily play guide and historian. This season, what better way to soak in the spirit? We suggest you step in and hear the sound of piped music, at its very best.
