at the Cathedral
The 2014-15 Schedule will be posted in early September.
Below is this past year's 2013-2014 Schedule for your perusal.
The Cathedral Organ
The first organ at Christ Church, dedicated on December 7, 1859, was made by the Henry Erben factory in New York. The $7000 instrument was one of the largest in the south, composed of the pedal, choir, great and swell organ and 50 stops. The 1906 hurricane destroyed the organ. It was replaced by a Hook and Hastings organ in 1907, which was rebuilt in the late 1940’s, and upon its completion the Christ Church organ was considered the finest in Mobile.
In 1985 Steiner-Reck completed another major rebuild of the organ. This increased the number of pipe ranks from 29 to 58. With the 2009 restoration to the Cathedral, the organ was refurbished and cleaned and a trumpet en chamade was installed on the balcony wall.
Today Christ Church Cathedral continues to enjoy hearing music from one of the finest organs in the southeastern United States.
All choirs rehearse weekly on Wednesdays.
