HISTORY

With over 4,500 pipes the organ of St John’s Cathedral is one of the largest and finest in Australia. Its stop-list is eclectic, and can accommodate a large range of styles. It is arguably most comfortable in the Romantic repertoire, where the interplay of generous acoustic and mellifluous timbres comes into its own.

The original specification of 1909 was drawn up by George Sampson. The Cathedral’s architect, J. L. Pearson, who had designed Truro Cathedral in England (famous for its magnificent Willis instrument) created a similar design where the blend of high stone ceilings and gothic arches created a fine acoustic for organ sound. In common with many organs of this period, the renowned builders Norman and Beard from England were contracted and produced an instrument of rich and sonorous tone without abrasive upperwork, strings, mixtures or mutations. There were additions in 1912, 1914 and 1915 leaving an organ of 3 manuals, 30 speaking stops and pneumatic action.

IMG_4472The high altar is a free standing structure with a great Byzantine style stone baldachino (a permanent ornamental canopy, as above a freestanding altar or throne), rather than a reredos, (a screen or a decorated part of the wall behind an altar in a church) supported on columns rising high above it. Beneath the high altar lie the remains of Bishop Webber.

IMG_4463 IMG_4464 In front of the altar in the sanctuary floor are two pieces of mosaic from the Holy Land, brought back after being uncovered during the First World War by the Australian Light Horse Regiment. One of these is part of the floor of a 6th-century synagogue at Jericho. The other is a fragment from the floor of a 6th-century Christian church at Gaza and is part of a larger mosaic now housed in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

IMG_4445Pearson’s elevated choir symbolically marks the passage from the secular nave into the higher and more holy choir. Here the clergy are also accommodated in their “elaborately carved” stalls and the archbishop’s throne cathedra (symbolising his authority and pastoral responsibilities) – designed by Pearson resides.

St John’s Cathedral is unique in Australia as the completion of the building design was achieved through collaboration between clergy, stonemasons and architects over a period of almost 100 years… It was also the only Victorian Gothic cathedral under construction in Australia

William Webber – the third Bishop of Brisbane and previously a vicar in London – was instrumental in initiating the Brisbane cathedral project.[2] In 1885–86, he commissioned John Loughborough Pearson to make sketch plans for Brisbane cathedral.[3] The Brisbane cathedral movement began in earnest in 1887 as a celebration of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee

It was a cruciform church with a wide nave, double aisles, apse and ambulatory, short transepts about halfway along the length of the building and an apsidal side chapel on the north. The west front had towers close to the end of the nave. The upper part of the west wall was supported by a relieving arch, which continued the line of the interior cross arches. The towers had massive buttresses. Their strong vertical lines carried on into corner turrets set before pyramidal spires

Cathedral Guides

St John’s Cathedral is a fine example of 19th century Gothic-Revival architecture designed in 1888 by John Loughborough Pearson.

The three stages, 1906 – 1910 and 1963 – 1968, 1989 – 2009 have created a superb Gothic interior with a forest of elegant sandstone columns and arches supporting the only stone vaulted ceiling in Australia.

Once inside the Cathedral, with space to seat 1,000 people, the visitor can see many examples of superb creative arts: examples of exquisite wood carvings include the Choir stalls and Archbishop’s seat intricately carved in Queensland Silkwood; more than 400 needlework cushions designed by Queensland College of Arts students, feature Australian flora and fauna.

Every window in the cathedral is of significance: from the large early 20th century Wheel Window to the collection of William Bustard’s work, and then the later vibrant windows of David Saunders, the Millenium Window designed by Scott Maxwell and made by Warwick Blair and the thought-provoking series of windows designed and made by Glenn Mack.

Visitors Welcome Daily.

To sing in this space, and accompanied by the fabulous cathedral organ, is a musical thrill rarely experienced elsewhere.
