“They were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.”
Rushing wind—the Holy Spirit—marked the gathering of the Church at Pentecost. The organ similarly “gathers” the many wind streams in its pipes into a mellifluous sound in praise of God.
The Cathedral will soon have the last of three new pipe organs. Two instruments are already in use: the portable continuo organ and the choir organ. A magnificent gallery organ will be installed above the entrance of the church in April 2024. Juget-Sinclair Organbuilders of Montreal built the new pipe organs.
