Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse, New York Untitled Untitled


The organ in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Syracuse was built by Frank Roosevelt of New York City in 1892, and was his Op. 520. It was rebuilt and enlarged by Schantz in 1980, who took great pains to match the additions, which were voiced by Head Voicer, Bob Maye, with the original Roosevelt work. The organ is an outstanding example of Roosevelt’s work. The stoplist is as follows:
