The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA


Moore-Wilkerson Continuo Organ Dedication This Sunday

All are invited to witness the sacred dedication of the Cathedral of St. Philip’s new six-stop continuo organ during Evensong this Sunday, September 30 at 4 p.m. The sound of this beautiful instrument is considerably more delicate than our principal organs in the Cathedral Nave and Mikel Chapel, since the pipes are much smaller and are scaled specifically for the performance of early music. The new continuo organ will find frequent use not only for concerts of baroque music, but also in the accompaniment of the Tudor and Restoration anthem repertoire that the Cathedral Choirs regularly offer during worship.

Staff Singer and Choir Volunteer Positions

The Cathedral invites auditions by singers interested in being considered for staff singer positions for the 2018-2019 program year in its Soprano, Tenor, and Bass-Baritone sections, as well as those in all voice parts who may be interested in volunteering in the Cathedral Choir. The Cathedral's 12 staff singers form the professional core of the Cathedral Choir (about 60 singers) as well as its chamber ensemble, the Cathedral Schola (about 35 voices), all of which sing in the style of the Anglican choral tradition.

New Organ Installation Begins Next Monday

The Thomas Ruben Jones Memorial Organ will be installed in Mikell Chapel in the coming weeks, thanks to a gracious gift from Cathedral member Lowell Jacks. It will be the first pipe organ in the Cathedral’s oldest worship space! Built by Schoenstein & Co., the two manual and pedal organ will include nearly 1000 pipes, which will be housed primarily in the loft above the Mikell Chapel narthex. Pipes will also grace the wall directly behind and above the console.
