Hirings are becoming an increasing part of our business now, both for musical Society's performances and venues for weddings which have no playable instrument. We undertake hirings for orchestras such as BBC Philharmonic and the Halle, and for large, ambitious choral events.
We were very pleased, some while ago, to be chosen as the company to provide a temporary instrument for St Mungo's Cathedral, Glasgow to undertake all the musical liturgy and activities while the pipe organ was being completely refurbished. The Ahlborn proved very successful over a period of 18 months, being used for several recitals, and on completion of the restoration work a decision was made to keep the Ahlborn, giving the Cathedral a smaller, moveable, digital instrument at the west end of the Cathedral.
In addition to the AG series we are also able to supply more modest, economically priced instruments from the Ahlborn Praeludium range, details of which can be obtained by clicking on the 'Ahlborn' link above.
We provide a complete nationwide advisory service for churches finding themselves in the dilema of needing a new instrument.
We also work closely with architects on design of new churches or refurbishment of existing buildings, so that any organ installation is an integral part of the building both acoustically and aesthetically.
