The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine Organs
The Cathedral Basilica is graced with two organs that assist in leading worship every day of the year and provide wonderful capabilities for weddings and recitals.
Upon entering the church, the instrument that one sees framing the reredos in the Cathedral chancel is a Casavant Frères pipe organ, Opus 3821, installed in 2003. Its 56 ranks of pipes are played from a three manual console which sits to the right rear of the chancel. The organ console can be moved and placed in front of the altar for organ concerts and recitals.
A second organ is located in the choir gallery at the rear of the nave of the Cathedral. Installed in 2015 after the renovation of the church for the 450th Anniversary of the Parish, the Colby-Walker organ is a 70-rank digital instrument played from the three manual console. This instrument has complete resources of its own, and also is capable of playing and combining with the Casavant Frères pipe organ in the chancel.
