  • According to the New York City Organ Project website for St. Josaphat RC Church (, "After more than seven decades of service, the organ had become unreliable due to deterioration of its leather and mechanical parts. In 2011, Elsener Organ Works, of Deer Park, N.Y., was selected to rebuild the organ. All of the leather components within the chests were replaced with electro-mechanical magnets, and the original electro-pneumatic relay was replaced with a new Peterson ICS-4000 solid-state switching system, allowing MIDI output and record/playback capability. Funding for this work was provided by the Estate of Stanley Francis Jobo, a longtime parishioner of the church." (James Stettner. June 5, 2019)
