The Opus XIX

Grand organs are a tradition in cathedrals.  We are fortunate in Houston to have a gorgeous cathedral:

A cathedral this gorgeous deserves an organ just as amazing:

The Opus XIX is too technical for me to try to describe, but it is well-worth reading about.  Its FAQ sheet does it justice.  Thanks to a friend of mine, we were able to get up close and personal with this incredible instrument yesterday.  After First Friday Mass, we got a tour of the organ, after which Therese and Nicky got to play it.  Yes, they got to play an organ so special it has a nationally known name.  What an honor and a privilege!
