From the Director of Music
“The quality and craftsmanship, the care and neatness of their work, the way they fitted their installation schedules around the availability of access to the school’s auditorium was wonderful. The working relationship between school and company was happy and harmonious.
Australian Pipe Organs take much pride in their work and have a genuine love of what they do and will go out of their way to ensure that the receivers of their work are more satisfied and can truly rejoice in the final instrument.”
From the Headmaster
“I have been more than delighted with the way in which you and your colleagues have carried out this commission for the school. Your friendly, professional attitude (and theirs) have given me a great deal of satisfaction and confidence.When the instrument is formally commissioned and becomes part of the life of the school, I know it will be a great adornment to the place. And I congratulate you on the meticulous attention to details that has characterised every phase of the installation.”
From the Bishop of Sandhurst
“I wish to write to you and acknowledge how pleased I am with the outcome of the craftsmanship which you and your associates have manifested in the completion of this great undertaking. I am delighted with what has eventuated and constantly look forward to the more solemn ceremonies in our beautiful Cathedral when the organ is used to its best…
I wish the re-emphasise my appreciation for the quietly efficient way in which this work was done, the great attention to detail, the business-like approach which was clearly in evidence, the harmony with which the whole task was worked through and, of course, the great final result.”
From St Joseph’s College
“I never at any time had the slightest doubt that, given the opportunity, you would make and deliver for St Joseph’s an instrument of outstanding beauty and quality. In my estimation, this is exactly what the outcome has been…
My grateful thanks once again and indeed those of the entire St Joseph’s College community for your great and enduring work for this place. Earlier, the Chapel was like a mouth the the front teeth missing; now that sad and obvious gap has been filled forever and it is just great!”
From St Joseph’s Church
“Here at St Joseph’s Church West Brunswick, we recently installed a fine new organ. The instrument purchased from Scotch College, Melbourne was disassembled, stored and then renovated by the expert team at Australian Pipe Organs. It was expertly installed in the new gallery by the company. I am delighted with the final product.
Australian Pipe Organs provided clear and reliable advice at every stage in the project. The quality of the workmanship and the sensitivity to the realities of working in an operating church left nothing to be desired. Very importantly, the work was completed within the budget.”
From the Organist & Master of the Choristers
“[The work]… has been carried out by APO in exemplary fashion and with great attention to every detail with craftsmanship of the highest quality. The principals of APO, Mr.Robert Heatley, Mr. John Stephens and all their staff could not have been more helpful in discussing the contract, in accommodating any modifications and in the final carrying out of the project. The final result is most satisfying and has been greeted by local and overseas artists with universal acclaim.”
