"I am writing to thank you for your organ recital at this year's Pinner Music Festival. Your performance was much appreciated by the audience."

"Andrew was a great help from the beginning and assisted us with our choice of music from his recommended repertoire. He also had no problem with including some new pieces which we have requested outside of his suggestions. Andrew also liaised with a choir that we chose and made sure that all of the necessary communication and preparation was completed. This all resulted in a flawless and magnificent performance of music that made the wedding extra special for us all."

"I just wanted to say how much we all appreciated your excellent playing at Jane and Alex’s wedding on Saturday. I know you are used to taking on organs of all types and qualities, but nonetheless we were all very impressed that you managed to produce such lovely music with only one short rehearsal beforehand. Thank you very much."

MR & MRS BROADFOOT
Symondsbury, Dorset

"Thank you so much for playing so beautifully at our service. We were so happy with the music. I loved walking down the aisle to 'Highland Cathedral'; and 'Nimrod' during the signing of the registers was just perfect. Sorry we didn't get a chance to say it in person, but thank you so much; we couldn't have been happier with how it all went."

REV ANDREW WOODWARD
Brighton, East Sussex

"Andrew's second recital at St Mary's Brighton on
9th August 2014 brought the Bevington organ to life. We were offered a rare and exhilarating selection of colour, tone and diversity; the climax of which was William Walton's organ suite from his score for Laurence Olivier's Richard III (1955). Andrew carefully explained each piece as he went along in an easy and accessible manner appealing to both organ enthusiast and novice alike. Others came to enjoy a wonderful summer's evening recital. We will certainly invite him again."

"I will keep saying thank you to you Andrew for your fabulous work on Tuesday. A true professional and you made it a real pleasure for everyone. Thank you"

MR & MRS TILBROOK

"We wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful music at our wedding service on 5th October. It was absolutely fantastic and so many people commented on how wonderfully you played and how it lifted the congregation's singing. Our vicar said it brought a tear to her eye as you played Jerusalem! Thank you for helping to make our service so special and for providing us with memories that we will never forget."

MR & MRS RODGERS
Poole, Dorset
18.09.2013

"We used Andrew for our wedding in August and found him to be an outstanding organist. He met with us to discuss the music we wishes him to play, some of which was not particularly well known, and to familiarise himself with the church organ. Andrew was highly professional and really added to the whole wonderful experience of our wedding day. We would have no reservation in recommending him to others."

MR & MRS ELTRINGHAM
Bournemouth, Dorset

"I just wanted to write, both for myself and on behalf of Kathy, to thank you for playing yesterday. The music during our big day was very important to both of us, and it was so nice to have such wonderful hymns and an entrance which overshone our wildest hopes. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day a perfect occasion."                                                                       

CANON PETER WALKER
Colchester, Essex

"Thank you so much for coming and leading such a great recital for us on Saturday. I am sorry not more people were there to hear it, but those who were thoroughly enjoyed it.

The organ certainly sounds a very different instrument now, quite wonderful under your skilled hands. The programme explored some things many of us had never heard before and were not aware the organ could do."

MR & MRS TAYLOR
Bournemouth, Dorset
11.06.2013

"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our beautiful service on Sunday. It was absolutely perfect and best of all, we remember every second of it!

Andrew, all the music was exactly as we had hoped; I can't wait to watch it all back on video. Many thanks to the choir. We are overjoyed to be married and thank you for your part in our special day."

MAJOR & MRS HARE
Chitterne, Wiltshire

"Thank you so much for your time and brilliant playing, the music was very good and we got lots of comments about the hymns...the singing was brilliant. We were very happy with the service you provided and will happily refer you or pass any positive comment required."

MRS CORNELIUS
Event Manager,
Ringwood Meeting House
13.04.2013

"We had a wonderful afternoon on 6th April 2013, when you played the pipe organ recital at the Meeting House. It was absolutely amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the recital. Thank you for playing such an intuitive and inspirational programme of music. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed listening to the organ being played so professionally and beautifully, especially as a couple of pedals had unfortunately failed us on the day.

The programme you put together was excellent and many commented on the choice and how current it was to recent newsworthy events, some of the pieces being many people’s favourite. We had a varied audience, some of whom were organists themselves and all appreciated the programme and the way you made the pipe organ sound. Most commented on how wonderful it was to hear the organ being played after such a long time. We are still receiving praise on your performance and positive comments from the event.

Your expertise and professionalism showed throughout; we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you for making the recital a great success and so very special."

MR & MRS MARTIN
Bournemouth, Dorset

"Dear Andrew, just a quick note to say thank you for playing at our wedding. There is nothing like a church wedding with a choir accompanied by an organ and our wedding day was truly enhanced by both. We had lots of comments from friends and relatives at how beautiful the organ and choir were as part of the service.

We both loved the grandeur, of the two pieces for Pauline coming in and the going out music, brought to the occasion. We would not hesitate to recommend you as an organist to our friends; your playing added to what was a truly special day."

MR & MRS HILKEN
Bournemouth, Dorset
17.09.2012

"We had a fantastic day. It was absolutely amazing but a complete whirlwind! The service went very well and we were really pleased with the high standard of music you provided. We can’t thank you enough for going out of your way to find the specific piece of music we requested and learning it in such a short time frame. It sounded amazing and we really appreciate all the effort you went to for us, to make the service so special. Thank you again for everything you did for us."

MR & MRS NURSE
Fontmell Magna, Dorset
10.06.2012

"Emma and I would like to thank you so much, not only for your beautiful performance on the day but also for your help in choosing the music for the service. Your performance set the tone for what was a perfect day. From our preparatory meeting, your encyclopaedic knowledgeable and friendly, approachable manner meant we felt we were in safe hands.

Our only disappointment was that you were tucked away [in the organ] during the service and that we did not get an opportunity to thank you in person for the wonderful job you did. We would happily recommend your services."

"Your accompanying skills are of a very high standard."

"I just wanted to email you to thank you for playing the organ at our daughters christening, it was truly wonderful. We are inundated with lovely comments about your songs from everyone who attended the christening."
