Instruments are of course exposed to the ravages of time, they lose tonal character and suffer material wear and tear. With our high level of craftsmanship and skill, we step into the footprints of the old masters. We learn from their techniques and through understanding their craftsmanship and our empathy with the instrument we can put everything in context : the local conditions, the era in which the organ was built, and of course the music. Only in this way can we use  authentic intonation techniques to set free the original tonal characteristics and so give the instrument its soul back.

Despite being aware of our own skills, the legacy of the old masters and artisans has great importance for us. To learn from them and to profit from their wealth of experience is part of our success.
