Nearly all the instruments

Cathedral Pictures is the fourth animation on Animusic 2, based on Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibtion.


Instruments set inside a cathedral play parts of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. These sections include "Promenade" and parts of "Hut on Fowls Legs" or "Baba Yaga" and "The Great Gate of Kiev".

    The organs and the trumpets

    This was the first piece created for Animusic 2.
  • It is also the first Animusic piece based on pre-existing music.
  • A preview of this was included with Animusic Special Edition. The organ lights were yellow and some of the instruments sounded slightly different.
  • The pipe organ's lower register is heard often but not animated.
  • The bass guitar is ocasionally layered with a faint synth bass sound.
  • At the end the bass appears to pluck the string with two fingers.
  • During the Hut of Baba Yaga section when the bass does a slide the fingers stay in place.
