Since 1815, music at the Basilica has glorified God and uplifted spirits. Some of the finest musicians of the last two centuries have passed through its doors. The cornerstone of our vibrant music program is the magnificent 1868 Henry Erben pipe organ, which underpins the hearty singing of our congregation and choirs in hundreds of liturgies every year.
