'It is unlikely that a finer book on this subject could yet be written in our century … it is now the standard book. Hard-backed, its more than 400 pages supersede all others.' Church Times
'Stephen Bicknell's book is a considerable achievement: essential reading and a thoroughly useful, stimulating and intelligent work. It is eminently worthy of purchase by all interested in playing and studying the organ.' Organist's Review
'This is a wonderful book, undoubtedly the finest of its kind ever written, and I most heartily recommend it.' The Organ Historical Society Journal
'This is a handsomely produced and well written book with many black and white photographs, and should become an essential part of any organ lover's library.' Early Music Today
'… not only does it present an omnium gatherum of all previous research, it is also interlaced with succinct and informed comment which marks its author as a scholar of the first rank … a 'must' for every organ-lover.' Charles Mould, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
' … the writing is expert, a fine salute to recent developments in organ-studies in Britain … There is no organist who would not appreciate Bicknell's fresh style'. The Times Literary Supplement
This highly readable and lavishly illustrated 1996 work describes the history of organs built in England from AD 900 to the present day. The author's experience in organ building gives the account all the benefits of first-hand experience. Stephen Bicknell also draws on new research and includes many recent important discoveries.

I do not recommend this book for those wanting an overview. Understanding the Pipe Organ and The Organs of J.S. Bach might be better choices to start with. I urge you to examine the TOC'S of each. When I have a chance I'll review these other two books.
