The Cathedral Pipe Organ was installed in 2001 to replace 2 electronic organs that had previously been used in the Cathedral  for many years.  Planning for this magnificent instrument began in 1999.  Dr. Charles Callahan was appointed as tonal consultant to the project.  The Wicks Organ Co. of Highland, Illinois was selected to construct the new organ.

The organ is actually two organs with one console on the front altar as shown here and one in the choir loft.  The pipe organ required significant changes to the Cathedral most notably the construction in the east transept of a loft to hold some of the over 4,400 pipes that make up the organ. 

Close-ups of the transept console gives a hint of the complex workmanship that is needed to construct an instrument of this kind.  For specific information on the St. Agnes Cathedral Organ including the stoplist please visit the Wicks Organ Co. Opus 6393 website.
