A home organ for Mr. Philip Baldwin
"It is now three months since you delivered my Norwich- and I feel I have had time to settle with it and to feel at home with it, so I thought you might be interested in my initial thoughts.
The strings are excellent, and I feel the inclusion of a Contra Salicional on the swell is most useful, as it provides the added benefit of creating 8'4' when played an octave higher with the 8' Salicional.
The flutes are gorgeous, all different and yet they blend so well together. The Nason is a lovely stopped diapason when played an octave lower, and the Koppel flute lives up to its name by fitting in anywhere. I do like the chiffs on the Chimney flute and Nazard - the mutation stops on the choir are giving me a whole new source of sounds that I'm still finding out about.
The reeds are the icing on the cake - it is such a pleasure to play an organ and not worry about reeds being 'out'. The swell Trumpet is versatile enough to be used as a Trompette or a chorus reed and I find the provision of a 16' Double Trumpet (on the Great) before a 4' Clarion, an excellent idea. The Choir woodwind stops are an uncanny replica of the real orchestral instrument and the Tuba could have belonged to Gabriel himself!

|A home organ for Mr. Michael Bass in Singapore
"My apologies for waiting nearly three weeks to inform you that my organ arrived safely, was quickly installed, and has since had considerable use. I am utterly delighted. I can also assure you that this kind of instrument is more than a little unusual in Singapore!

Best wishes to you and Ken
|St Margaret's Church, Bilsthorpe, Notts
"It will soon be a year since our Norwich organ was installed, and although we have kept in touch, we thought it fitting that we recorded our appreciation of this excellent instrument.
|In 1995 we rebuilt an instrument for Dr DJ Henry of Nottingham to a specification by Paul Hale of Southwell Minster. The organ was originally built as a 2 manual in 1986. The work included a full digital upgrade, as well as the addition of a third manual and changes to the stoplist.
"I am writing to express my appreciation of the excellent work you did in converting my 2-manual analogue instrument to 3- manual digital technology.
