Cooke Organs

Who's Who

Stephen COOKE

Founder and owner of the firm, Stephen trained with the firm of Hill, Norman and Beard in the early 1970s and then worked in electrical and computer engineering into the early 1980s, setting up his first organ workshop in 1983. Since then he has built up an excellent reputation as a first class pipe voicer and craftsman of skill and integrity. He is also Director of Music at All Saints' Church, Westbury where he is engaged in the ongoing rebuilding of the 3 manual Bevington organ, which has been moved one bay west to great musical effect and much of its original tonal character reinstated. A new mechanical action and coupler chassis has been made in-house, including the pedal organ, which now has a new soundboard (and several new ranks made) after being electrified in the 1970s. This project is typical of Stephen's work in terms of quality, attention to detail, accuracy of new parts, quality of finish and the consideration of the musical requirements of the church being foremost in decision making.
