There is a great deal of new content and fresh material on nzorgan.com. But we also aim to make this site a compilation of the original nzorgan.com website with its unique and historic photos, commentaries, news, events, articles, and everything else that we followed in the 13 years the Rieger organ was active in the Town Hall. It has been pared to show only the essential details. As these pages were originally a footprint in time of a special musical instrument, the narrative text about the installation and opening events are as they were recorded. Apart from correcting dead links and other whoopsies, only later developments, the impact of the earthquakes, and rebuilding progress pages have been updated.
