Blessed Kateri Church, LaGrangeville, New York
Diane Bish Signature Series 80 Stop, Three-Manual
A Diane Bish Signature Series DB80Q has been installed in Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Roman Catholic Church, LaGrangeville, New York. Diane Bish performed the Dedication Concert on Sunday, November 9, 2008. She amazed the audience with her fiery technique and diverse repertoire. The new church is one of the most significant built in the New York archdiocese in recent times. His Eminence Edward Cardinal Egan dedicated the new church on November 23, 2008, with over 1,000 people in attendance. Blessed Kateri began as a mission church in 1998. In 2006 the parish started construction on a new church which was finished in November, 2008.
The DB80Q features many custom stops, including a Pontifical Trumpet speaking from the rear gallery at 16-8-4 foot pitches and a North German Baroque Arp Schnitger stop list that is used every Sunday for Mass. The organ boasts three complete audio systems, each installed in different parts of the sanctuary.
