The St. Dominic Organ
“The pipe organ is to be held in high esteem in the Latin Church, since it is its traditional instrument, the sound of which can add a wonderful splendor to the Church’s ceremonies and powerfully lift up men’s minds to God and higher things.” — Musicam Sacram, 1967
The core of the St Dominic organ was built by the Wicks Organ Company, Opus 5490. The 41 rank instrument was originally purchased from Capitol Street United Methodist Church in 2004 along with 9 additional ranks from the Wicks Organ Company. Installation was completed in the Spring of 2008 in the church’s rear gallery. The 4 manual nave console controls 105 stops and 122 pipe and digital ranks.
The 3 manual gallery console has a floating Solo division and also controls the entire main organ. Future plans include a chancel antiphonal organ playable from either console. The organ is part of our long-range planning for St Dominic. Our goal is to ensure that we have the means to support our liturgies musically for many generations to come.
