Eric Johnson is one of the most talented reed & flue voicers in the USA today. He did a phenomenal job with the little 25-rank Kilgen at Our Lady of Refuge, in Brooklyn. I can only begin to imagine how thrilling the cathedral's organ sounds now. Both churches are lucky to have him and the rest of the team from Quimby Pipe Organs work on our respective pipe organs. Wish I could hear the recital live. Olivier Latry was just in Brooklyn to dedicate this pipe organ in front of a sold out church - many people never attended an organ recital before - they loved him - the thunderous applause he received - and the call back for an encore is a testament to this. But none of this would have happened without Quimby Pipe Organs, that team did a first class job. I am so happy my parish hire them. They went above and beyond what they "had" to do. The Pastor of the Parish and the Bishop of Brooklyn presented the company with a plaque for their outstanding work. The Cathedral of Saint Paul is lucky to have been able to hire such artisans as are we in Brooklyn. I hope I can visit the organ in the Cathedral of Saint Paul. If anyone is in Brooklyn this Saturday - the celebration continues with the Vierne Mass as the Ordinary at the 5pm Mass. All my best to the Cathedral of St. Paul. Joe Vitacco Chair of the Organ Committee of Our Lady of Refuge in Brooklyn.
