ACTION: E-P pitman VOICES: 48 STOPS: 65 RANKS: 73 PIPES: 4,047 & unit NOTES The original idea of a new Cathedral in Spokane originated in 1924 with the Right Reverend Edward Makin Cross, S.T.D., shortly after his arrival to become the new missionary bishop. The congregation of the new Cathedral was formed from the merger of three other congregations, and the sale of their properties helped to fund the construction. These three congregations were the former Cathedral – All Saints – which stood at the corner of First Ave. & Jefferson St.; St. James Church at the corner of Grand Blvd. & 25th Ave.; and St. Peter's Church at Denver & Newark. The new Cathedral's first pipe organ was the II-manual, 21-rank instrument built by Henry Pilcher's Sons in 1905 for All Saints Cathedral. The second organ was a used IV-manual, 32-rank W.W. Kimball Co. instrument originally built for Spokane's Clemmer Theatre in 1914. It was installed at the Cathedral ca. 1935, and the Pilcher organ was moved to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church on W. Dean Ave. where it still exists in predominantly original form on its original slider chests. The Aeolian-Skinner was installed in 1960, and the old Kimball was sold to Balcom and Vaughan of Seattle. Part of it was installed at St. Michael's Lutheran in Portland, Oregon as a III- manual, 15-rank organ. The remainder of the organ was gradually dispersed for parts or discarded. The Aeolian-Skinner places the Hauptwerk on the right side with the Récit behind it. Part of the Pedal is exposed on the left side with the Choir behind it. The rest of the Pedal is behind the Choir box. The gold façade pipes facing into the side transepts are ornamental only. The console sits on the left side with the organist facing the altar. The Hauptwerk 8'/4' Trompette en Chamade unit is actually located in the rear gallery with the antiphonal Gallery division, and the pipes are actually hooded - not truly en Chamade.
