You should read Mary Therese Biebel’s wonderful article in The Times Leader on what’s going on in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Here are a few reasons.
- Monsignor Joseph Meier would often say to me they were so sorry they bought it …
- … the electronic organ — even before it started breaking down — was at best a CD, while a real pipe organ is a live Philharmonic concert.
- They hope that nearby St Stephen’s Mark Laubach (fellow Westminster Choir College alumnus), whom he considers “the finest organist around,” will give a concert on their Moller at St Nicholas.

If you need a refreshing breeze of positive news, read this article and look forward to the conclusion of Steve Sykes’s restoration and rebuild of the Moller organ.
