Termed “The American Classic”, the Grand Organ of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Chicago, Illinois is one of the few Skinner organs that remains in nearly all of its original state.
Organists now have the opportunity to play this magnificent and historic instrument of the early 20th Century in two versions, one with original acoustics and the MasterWorks Edition which features dry pipe samples without acoustics.
