Breathing New Life Into Pipes of the Past
For the past 175 years, organ builders Henry Willis & Sons have been preserving sacred sounds. The company has been in the business of building and preserving organs since the Victorian period, when founder Henry Willis became famous for creating some of the grandest organs around. Today, they are responsible for having built around 2,500 organs, and restoring thousands more.
