Audio engineers William Lund, Robert Woods, Harry Munz, Michael Nemo and Chris Brown present this musical landmark from various acoustic perspectives.

The Cathedral Organ was created by Ernest M. Skinner in 1910. Following the completion of the church's interior structure, the organ was enlarged and renovated in 1954 by G. Donald Harrison and the Aeolian-Skinner firm.
