A brief annotation 25 July 2011 marks the 800th anniversary of the date when a cornerstone of the Riga Cathedral, a Latvian holy place and sign of God’s presence in this country, was laid. Assembling people, the Riga Cathedral has always pointed at the transcendent that stands above us all, above the times and the changes they bring. One of the universal languages of the Riga Cathedral is music. It has been present at services and events since 1884 when the then largest organ in the world, sporting about 7 000 pipes and 124 stops, was built. The Riga Cathedral is an important witness of the ages, people, and eternity.
