From the Archives... Another photo I overlooked when I felt I was posting too many interior shots of Holy Name Cathedral all within a few days back in 2010. Thankfully, it was not deleted.
This is a view looking toward the rear of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, Illinois. From the Holy Name Cathedral website:
"This magnificent instrument, with its vocality of tone and soaring beauty of its French Oak cases, is one of the most significant organs in the United States. It was handmade for the Cathedral in the workshops of Flentrop Orgelbouw in Zaandam, Holland, and installed in 1989. Comprised of 5,558 pipes in 71 stops over 4 keyboards and pedal, it is easily the largest mechanical action organ in the Chicago area. Its true grandeur, however, does not come from its size or appearance but from its wide spectrum of available sounds, which gracefully lead musical liturgy and lift the hearts of all who hear it."
