Notes: The great Cathedral organ which now serves St. Mark's has gone through a number of evolutions over the years. In 1928, a four-manual organ was installed by the Welte Organ Company. The instrument, designed by Charles Courboin, organist of St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York City, and Stanley Avery, organist of St. Mark's from 1909 to 1949, was well-known for the breadth and beauty of its ensemble.
