"A Polished Gem" “A Polished Gem”

This outstanding Hook & Hastings organ was fully restored in 1998 by Guilbault-Therien, a spectacular demonstration of the skills of a colleague too soon departed. Guy Therien passed away in 2001, only in his mid-fifties. Here is a terrific opportunity to acquire a magnificent nineteenth-century instrument in excellent condition, ready for another century of service.
