The instrument for St. Joseph Roman Catholic Basilica, Webster, Massachusetts, completed by this Firm at Eastertide 2000, is essentially a new pipe organ of two manual and Pedal divisions, 25 ranks, electro-pneumatic slider and unit action windchests, with solid-state relays, multi-level combination action, Transposer, and MIDI accessories, including record/playback functions.  Approximately one-third of the pipework was retained from the George W. Reed pipe organ previously serving this Church.  The new casework, the vision of the Pastor, Rev. Monsignor Anthony Czarnecki, was drawn and fitted with speaking façade pipes by the Organbuilders.  Otherwise, it was constructed and decorated by Polish craftsmen in Webster, under the leadership of Wiesław Pieniazek.  The pipe shades were adapted from woodwork removed from the now-demolished Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Ware, Mass.  This organ portrait is the photography of Stephen Petegorsky of Northampton.  The pipe organ was inaugurated formally on Sunday, April 30, 2000, in a ceremony with Solemn Blessing by the Most Reverend Daniel P. Reilly, Bishop of the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts.
