The restoration of the historical pipe organ of the parish church of St James and Augustine in Cremona, carried out by the organ-maker Pietro Corna in Leffe (Bergamo) between 2017 and the spring-summer 2019, stands out as a relevant episode of the Italian organ-making craft. The instrument currently used, made by Francesco Bossi in 1853, still preserves the wooden organ case and the central group of the facade pipes of a former Renaissance organ, made in 1533 by Nicolo Tezani, a local organ-maker. The Cremonese organist Paolo Bottini plays on the historical organ a compilation of the best pieces of music written by Cremonese composers from the 16th to the 20th century.
