The Organ

­

In the Latin Rite of the Church, of all the instruments in the world, the organ is to be accorded pride of place. So we are so very fortunate to have a wonderful organ at Our Lady of the Mountains. Our organ, the Viscount Unico 500, was installed in December of 2016 to meet the needs of our growing music program. We chose the Viscount Unico for many reasons, the most important being the use of modeling technology rather than sampling, and the resulting customizability. Our organ has three manuals and 56 stops with lighted draw knobs. Our organ also features a 12 channel audio system with 24 speakers and 2 subwoofers. The stops used on the organ are routed to different speakers that point in different directions in the church. This creates the impression that sounds are coming from various places and creates a much more immersive soundscape. Our Viscount organ has the power to fill our church with beautiful sound, the flexibility to keep up with our constantly evolving music program, and the disposition to handle some of the most demanding repertoire. The stop lists are as follows:
