As Trustees of the Friends of Christ Church Spitalfields, we highly recommend William Drake Organ Builders. Their restoration of the 1735 Richard Bridge organ at Christ Church Spitalfields was carried out with consummate skill and dedication.
There were considerable challenges in what was a lengthy and complex project; not least the tragic loss of Bill, and their steadiness throughout was extremely reassuring.
It was an extraordinary and unique restoration which has set a new standard of excellence. The finished instrument is a joy to listen to and William Drake Organ Builders should be justly proud of their achievement.
