An electromagnetic calorimeter has been built for the hyperon beam experiment WA89 at CERN. It is composed of 642 lead glass Cherenkov counters. The detector was calibrated with an electron test beam and with an extensive π0 sample produced in hyperon beam runs. The setup, the performance and results from operation in WA89 are presented.
