Originally built in Georgetown, Massachusetts, The Noack pipe organ was installed in 1987. The instrument is a tracker organ with 34 ranks and 2,308 pipes. The case is made entirely of solid white oak, and the console trim is black walnut. James Lohmann (b. 1953), a Chicago woodcarver, made the pipes and swell screens, The woods were chosen to blend with the Cathedral’s furnishings; the white oak will darken with age.
Behind the organ can be found a plaque, naming those who contributed to the consrtuction of this magnificent organ.
