Rosales Organ
The Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy Millennium Organ

Manuel Rosales; Los Angeles, California; 2000
3 manuals, 48 ranks

The Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy Millennium organ was built by Rosales Organ Builders of Los Angeles in 2000. It consists of 48 ranks of pipes over three manual divisions and pedal; five ranks of pipes have been incorporated from the 1926 Casavant organ that stood behind the former high altar in the east apse of the cathedral. The new organ was carefully designed to provide musical leadership from the east apse for liturgies, to accompany the cathedral choral ensembles, and to provide for a more authentic performance of Baroque music for liturgical and concert use. A four-manual master console provides a single organist with complete control over the tonal resources of both the Rosales organ and the Hutchings-Votey organ in the west gallery.
