Holy Name Cathedral

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 18 March 2014 in Architecture and Portfolio.

From the Archives......

View looking toward the rear of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, Illinois.

Above the entrance is the grand Flentrop Organ which commands a strong profile and "sings down the axis of the Nave." In 1989, the organ was replaced by a new four-manual, 117-rank instrument by Flentrop Orgelbouw of Zaandam, Holland, the largest instrument by this builder in the United States.
