Both the gallery and sanctuary organs of Opus 600 originally were controlled by the main four manual console located in the gallery. In 1998 a detached, movable, two manual drawknob console from a 1936 Casavant organ damaged in a fire was rebuilt and installed on a movable platform at the front of the nave to play both instruments.

Four manuals and pedals, 78 stops, 107 ranks with an electro-pneumatic action.

Orgue de tribune: 59 stops, 84 ranks

Orgue de choeur: 19 stops, 23 ranks
