Once the pipes have been made, they still require voicing. The art of the voicer is key to the musicality and versatility of the finished instrument.
The skills of voicing has developed over many generations and the voicer of today has to be well versed in preparing pipework of different styles where these are demanded.
Michael Blighton carries out all the pipework preparation, sometimes with the assistance of other members of staff. The final tonal regulation of the pipework is always done on site so that it can be matched perfectly to the acoustic of the environment in which the organ is to live.
