 Ireland's foremost organbuilders retain the best equipped facilities and skilled resources. Every one of our organs is unique and  designed individually internally, technically and musically as well as architecturally. Kenneth Jones pipe organs are found in highly prestigious venues, such as Dublin’s National Concert Hall and Christ Church Cathedral, in St. Peter’s Cathedral Belfast, in Tewkesbury Abbey in England  (organ-case part-survival from Dallam-1631), St. Peter’s Church Eaton Square London, in the University Church Cambridge and in Emmanuel College Cambridge whereby the organ-case  was restored which partly survived from ca. 1684 ,this involved painstaking archaeological and historic research and detective work in order to re-create their original form as accurately as possible, and in  others farther afield include those in the Cathedral of the Madeleine Salt Lake City U.S.A., Christ Church Cathedral Vancouver Canada, Trinity College Melbourne University Australia, Youth Concert Hall China Central Conservatory of Music Beijing ,Tewkesbury Abbey) and Emmanuel College Cambridge .  Further important achievements in this field include the organs in Christ Church Cathedral Waterford (organ-case and musical re-creation of Thomas Elliot organ of 1817), St. Michael’s Church Charleston South Carolina (organ-case and musical re-creation of Snetzler organ of 1767) and Monaghan Cathedral (restoration of 1891 Telford organ).The new organ for Rugby School Chapel was awarded a Building of the Year Award in 2002 by the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust, chaired by Lord St.John of Fawsley. In technical/physical and architectural design but more particularly in musical and tonal design, realisation and voicing, Kenneth Jones organs are held in high esteem. Other commissions include the restoration of the organ-case and highly decorated front-pipes of the historic organ in the Chapel Royal, Dublin (for the Office of Public Works) and the building of a substantial organ of three manuals and pedals for Carlow Cathedral.These organs are the means, the medium through which music is practised daily, used in accompaniment and in performance, enjoyed by tens of thousands on at least a weekly basis.
