Notes:

1. This is a direct electric action unit organ with five extended ranks – Bourbon, Diapason, Salicionel, Dulciana and Flute – providing stops from upwards of 350 pipes. It is a standard Casavant console with tilting tablets controlling the stop action. It is identical to the organ in St. David’ Presbyterian Church.

2. The strategic location of Gander brings into the Cathedral many and famous people, including Her Majesty and Prince Philip, several bishops and archbishops and passengers from the 50 airplanes grounded here at 9/11.

3. For more thoughts on the pros and cons of unit organs, see St. John The Evangelist, Coley's Point, St. Anthony United Church, Basilica in Labrador City and St. David's Presbyterian, St. John's.
