The Antiphonal Organ

The Antiphonal Organ of seven ranks was installed in 2001. It is located near the front of the church, underneath the Saint Cecilia window. The instrument has been revoiced by Theodore Gilbert and retailored by Timothy E. Smith to meet St. Cecilia Parish’s liturgical needs. Extensive wiring by Allen Taylor makes the organ both playable from its own 2 manual console, and from the 4 manual console in the gallery. The case was built in 1850 by W. B. D. Simmons and was refurbished by Andrew Smith.
