New Organ Installation Begins Next Monday

The Thomas Ruben Jones Memorial Organ will be installed in Mikell Chapel in the coming weeks, thanks to a gracious gift from Cathedral member Lowell Jacks. It will be the first pipe organ in the Cathedral’s oldest worship space! Built by Schoenstein & Co., the two manual and pedal organ will include nearly 1000 pipes, which will be housed primarily in the loft above the Mikell Chapel narthex. Pipes will also grace the wall directly behind and above the console.

Cathedral Choir England Pilgrimage Benefit Concert

Choral Requiem Eucharist for All Faithful Departed

On Sunday, November 6, at 4 p.m., the Cathedral will offer a Choral Requiem Eucharist during which we express the intercommunion of the living with those who have entered into the nearer presence of God, and we remember by name those members and friends of the Cathedral parish who have died in the faith of Christ within the past year. Written as a liturgical work (and sung this day by the Cathedral Choir with a small orchestra and organ), Maurice Duruflé’s setting of the ancient and image-rich Christian texts of the Requiem mass will be sung in its intended context of worship – a fully choral service of Holy Communion – using Duruflé’s original, most intimate orchestration. All are welcome. For those who cannot attend, this service will also be streamed online at stphilipscathedral.org/stream.
