Sacred Heart Pipe Organ
The pipe organ at Sacred Heart was built by the Fratelli Ruffatti Company (Ruffatti Brothers) of Padua, Italy, in 1978. The two-manual instrument has 36 ranks with 31 speaking stops. The console is prepared for an additional 16 ranks derived from 13 speaking stops, which make a total of 53 ranks. The horizontal display just below the loft is the splendid Trompette en Chamade, which celebrates major feast days and is often featured in wedding processions.
