It is always a pleasure to receive appreciation from an expert in his field, so we were delighted by a message sent to us by James Atherton, head voicer of the organ builder, Nicholson and Co.
Every member of our team in Leeds strives to make the best possible organ pipes and we were gratified by James' recognition of this.
He wrote: "Shires' pipes are, in my opinion, some of the finest in the world. Terry is so very easy to work with and keen to experiment with different scales and materials to deliver exactly what we are after. The quality of the pipes is exceptional and they virtually voice themselves. If there is anything we want to change or would prefer done differently, Terry obliges. I cannot recommend him or his fantastically talented craftsmen enough."
Everyone here was touched by James' kind comments and we can only respond by saying what a pleasure and privilege it is to work with such an excellent international firm of organ builders as Nicholson's. The full message may be read here.
