This beautifully custom carved console was built to control the combined function of a newly installed Nichols and Simpson Apse Organ with a renovated 1966 Robert Noehren Gallery Organ.
The renovation of this Sanctuary was a ground breaking architectural design for the Roman Catholic Church and was not without its detractors. Pews were replaced with single seating and the Altar brought forward to a round predella in the Nave of the sanctuary. The Nichols and Simpson Organ is located in the Apse along with the newly relocated Choir. The organ is placed to support choral work and acoustically couple with the voices as their combined sound moves into the nave.
