In the first decades of the twentieth century, American organbuilders such as Skinner, Austin, and Möller dominated the scene, overshadowing such builders as George Kilgen & Son of St. Louis. But Kilgen triumphed with the grand instrument installed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York in 1930. Pietro Yon was organist at St. Patrick’s and as he maintained an energetic schedule of travel and concertizing he was an effective champion of the work of George Kilgen. Built with the highest standards of craftsmanship and artistry, the Kilgen organ is a magnificent example of early twentieth-century organbuilding with bold choruses, colorful solo stops, and convenient efficient consoles. This organ is surely worth a good look.
