The Great Organ
A grand instrument: the Cathedral's Great Organ has 10,647 pipes, in 189 sets or “ranks” of pipes.
The Cathedral’s Great Organ was built and installed in 1938 by the Ernest M. Skinner & Son Organ Company of Methuen, Mass., as their Opus 510. It was significantly altered and expanded throughout the 1960s and 70s by workers from the Aeolian-Skinner Organ Company. The Great Organ now has 10,647 pipes, in 189 sets or “ranks” of pipes.
