I was talking with a good friend of mine, who is currently the music directory and organist of the St. Cecilia's Cathedral, here in omaha.


She has informed me of a new practice organ in place. So that totals to 5 organs the cathedral owns. 4 of them for sure pipe organs, and this new mystery one. I will have to go and check it out for myself to discover what it may be!


Haven't been there in almost 2 years, but am super excited to go back. The cathedral has a magnificent collection of fine instruments- here are some of the pieces they own-

ORGANS-
2003 Martin Pasi Dual temperament 3manual, 30 pedals, tracker action 65 rank pipe organ. One of 2 in the world that can change temperament.

1990s Bedient 2m, pedal smaller positif pipe organ (4-5 ranks) in the chapel. Baroque style

Bedient 1 manual and pedal at front of cathedral- Baroque style - 1 stop.

1950s or so Holtkamp Martini 3 rank organ in a practice room behind the cathedral. Self contained 2m 32 pedal ago organ. My first pipe organ experience was on this instrument!

----Mystery organ----


Harpsichords-
Grand french Double - no more info known- in a practice room

Larger sized single manual- most likely french-in same room as the french double

Italian spinet- highly ornate, painted in the romantic style- in the sitting area for the music office

Smaller single manual flemish natural wood in one of the offices

Another single manual in another office.

A mid sized single manual french in the cathedral itself.


Harps-
Lyon and Healy concert grand pedal harp

Salzedo style Lyon and Healy concert grand (Belongs to the omaha symphony/their harpist I believe)


As for pianos, the only one I know of is a fairly new yamaha 6' or so grand in a practice room



I have not been in all the practice rooms (probably not even half of them) and not all the rooms inside the cathedral. Im sure there are more instruments tucked away! laugh

Wow, congratulations ! Looks like true 8' pipes, probably a 16' Bourdon inside too. Some 10 stops (if the 7 knobs on right have symmetry in the left, minus auxiliaries/couplers etc)

The main cathedral in Bucuresti, Romania used for several months a furniture-organ similar in height but narrower (5 stops, 2 manuals, still a true 8' and stopped 16') while the main organ was under repairs.

When you'll get to play this Mystery, please let us know!

Not only will I tell you about it, I shall show you!


Here is a horrendous video of em playing it. I was so unprepared, its been over a year and a half since I have touched an organ, and I had no idea what to play.

Also sorry for the terrible quality. This was taken with my phone.

Also yep, its got 2-3 true 8' pipe sets. One being the facade principles. (maaybe the oboe is a true 8', maybe not)

The 16' pedal bourdon is derived from an 8'.
