Organ Specs

The organ is Casavant Frères Opus 2805 (1965). This two-manual, 25-stop organ is a fully mechanical action instrument with an elegant Ruckpositiv. However, it has no electronic control systems nor expression. Nevertheless, English organist Peter Hurford once mentioned that this was one of the finest Baroque instruments in the world. As such, he recorded extensively on this instrument with DECCA. The results were astounding and his Bach and pre-Bach recorded interpretations were considered as the authority on the performance of Bach’s organ music.

In 1914, Casavant Frères of St-Hyacinthe, Quebec installed a French-styled 86-stop 4-manual instrument in the north west transept of the cruciform church at the gallery level to the east of the choir. In response to complaints about this location from congregation, choir and organist the architect consulted noted American organ builder E.M. Skinner, who found the “workmanship fine and first class – but the organ did not sound right.” During early revisions the organ took on several American influences, including several voicings and stops in the tradition of Hope-Jones. Since then, the organ has been enlarged to five-manual and 101 ranks, 95 stops with major console upgrade completed in 2015 and preparations made for a further expansion in 2016 or a 19 rank, 11 stop antiphonal division.
