Since the year 2000, Cicely Winter has been deeply involved with the Institute for Historic Organs in Oaxaca (IOHIO) the documentation, promotion, and preservation of a remarkable collection of historic pipe organs built between 1686 and 1891 in churches throughout the southern Mexican State of Oaxaca. All have been documented, some have been restored, while others remain in various states of conservation.
IOHIO will sponsor its 14th (and final) International Organ and Early Music Festival (February 22-27, 2023) in and around Oaxaca. More information, with many color photographs of instruments, can be accessed online. This very well may be the last such festival, so if you have thought about attending, understand there will not be a ‘next year’.
Additional instrument pictures are included with an interview of IOHIO director Cicely Winter published in the American Guild of Organist’s online journal Vox Humana.

Recordings issued by IOHIO are available through the Organ Historical Society online catalog.
