Superb news!
On Friday 7 June, Nicholson’s completed the West Organ as the tonal finishing work ended.
We could not be happier with the outcome, which is an instrument of wonderful beauty and integrity.

The organ was subsequently inspected by Dr William McVicker, one of the leading organ consultants in the country, who was extremely impressed with the quality of workmanship and the breadth of sound and colour.

James Atherton, Head Voicer at Nicholson’s, tells me that he did very little to the Lewis pipework as it was made and voiced with such quality back in 1906. He thinks it is “genuinely one of the finest organs I have ever played” – praise indeed!
James made two videos of the completed organ, which can be found on Nicholson’s YouTube channel here:
