The Cathedral Pipe Organ

Help us build a beautiful instrument for the Cathedral of SS. Simon and Jude in Phoenix, Arizona

The organ will have 6 divisions: the Grand Orgue (the main, unenclosed division), the Positiv and Recit divisions (both enclosed in the loft), a Solo division (which draws rich solo sounds from other divisions of the organ), the antiphonal division (located at the front of the church near the ambo), and the Pedale division (which the organists play with their feet). 


The Cathedral of SS. Simon and Jude is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Phoenix and the home of Phoenix's televised Mass.

The Cathedral Pipe Organ of SS. Simon and Jude Cathedral will be a 4 manual, 47 rank, organ with approximately 2554 speaking pipes and some digital extensions.  The organ will be built by the Peragallo Organ Company of Paterson, NJ - a Catholic-owned, family-run, pipe organ builder that was founded in 1918 by John Peragallo Sr., and is run today by John Peragallo III and family. The Peragallos have built or renovated the pipe organs of many Catholic Cathedrals, including their recent renovation of the pipe organs at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City.

“In my eyes and ears the organ will  forever be the King of Instruments."
