Restorations continue on Our Lady of victory Church’s 18th century organ. Since Eden Leisure Group has pledged their support to Din l-Art Helwa, restorer Robert Buhagiar, has been able to work on reconstructing and assembling the precious instrument. 

As you can see through the pictures, the pipe organ’s 2 bellows have just been recreated.  Before electricity, for the organ to work, at least one person was required to operate the bellows. When signalled by the organist, a ‘calcant’ would operate a set of bellows, supplying the organ with air.
