Event Description

N.P. Mander Organ Recital
Kent Tritle, organ


The magnificent pipe organ at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola--at 5,000 pipes, 30 tons, 45 feet high, with 55,000 parts, four keyboards, 5,000 pipes and 68 different stops—is the largest tracker-action pipe organ in the New York metropolitan area. At a cost of $1.25 million in 1992, its creation by the English organ builder N.P. Mander involved a year of planning and construction in England, and a five-month on-site installation at St. Ignatius Loyola. The N.P. Mander Organ debuted to an audience of 1,800 with a recital by organist David Higgs on April 27, 1993. 


All N.P. Mander Organ Recitals feature large-screen projection so that the audience may see the organist at work.
