This organ CD is always in our best-sellers list, year after year.  With both popular and unusual works in his progam, Cathedral Organist Donald Dumler strikes just the right balance of musical choices.  Both the Chancel and Grand Gallery Organs were built by Kilgen, and are controlled by two new "twin" five-manual consoles.  With 177 stops and over 9,000 pipes, the organ is both a grand musical statement, and a priceless antique whose sounds evoke the ideals of organbuilding in the 1920's.
