The Organ

Resurrection’s organ is a rebuilt vintage Casavant (1916) pipe organ originally installed in the cavernous basement chapel of the Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Lewiston, Maine. The organ campaign, begun in 2005 and completed in 2007, resulted in donations from parishioners, school families, and the Friends of the Resurrection across the country and around the world. Work on the organ began in 2007; the first services with the new organ were held at Christmas 2009.

In addition to the 1916 pipes by Casavant, the organ contains a French Horn by E. M. Skinner originally in a church upstate in the 1920s, a pedal Bourdon in the chancel chamber originally built by E. M. Skinner for his organ of 1924 at Resurrection, three ranks of pipes from the McManis organ of 1962 which have been rebuilt, and several new ranks of pipes built as replicas of unique stops of the period in which the bulk of this organ was built, including the Tuba Mirabilis & Flûte Harmonique.
