  • Kennedy Funeral Organ



    Did anyone see/hear the pipe organ at the Kennedy funeral yesterday? It was a 3-manual, w/drawstop action. I have to admit, I watched most of the funeral just so I could hear the organ.




    I began watching on ABC, but found that CBS had better sound reproduction during the hymn than ABC or NBC did. I actually, could hear the full range of the organ--including the lower pedal notes. I tried reading the tag in the middle, just above the Swell, but couldn't see it. The fa├žade pipes behind the choir were painted.




    I'd be curious to learn more about the organ. Anyone know what it is?

    I didn't see the service but I do know the church: Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (a.k.a The Mission Church).




    This is one of the finest-sounding organs to be found in the USA - it is a Hutchings with some modifications by Fisk. I wish it was entirely original but the changes are helpful for some literature.




    If you are ever in Boston you must hear it in person - it completely fills the room and is very satisfying. I like it almost as much as theHook organin the Church of the Immaculate Conception (one of my very favorite instruments).

            it had a wonderful sound. I love when they open up most of the stops in those cathedrals.



            Unfortunately i think that's the most time ol ted spent in a church.

              Thank you for the link. I've added it to the list of organs to visit in the future. Fortunately, it's only 5 hours from me!
