"A beautiful organ - it's like a new friend whom one meets!  We have spent several hours together.  I immediately appreciated its action, so supple and musical.  Little by little I discovered the richness of its voicing in the course of building my program.  This evening I can write here that it has become a love story.  I love this organ and I believe it loves me too..."

"This instrument is one of the best organs of its size for performance of church music in Japan.  It can produce the sound of an English cathedral organ for the accompaniment of the choral repertoire as well as it creates French sounds for the performance of French romantic period organ literature.  It can make a smooth crescendo from its quietest sounds right up to full organ, thanks to the careful tonal design and mechanical aids.  Finally it is solidly constructed and should give many years of trouble-free service..."
        Prof. Scott Shaw, DMA,  Rikkyo University, Tokyo, Japan

 

"What a pleasure to be here with you on an organ that speaks French almost without an accent.  France is truly here at Pilgrim Congregational Church, and I have so enjoyed your friendly welcome.  Beautiful church, beautiful organ, beautiful reception..."
