"The Art of Music have been extremely professional in designing the order of service for my ordination to the priesthood, both in terms of advising on content and the design and layout. The booklet looks beautiful, is very clear and user friendly and I was delighted with the end result. I will definitely be using The Art of Music again for any big projects that come my way."

Alistair worked on the typesetting and production of The Play of Daniel, which I saw through the press as copy-editor and project manager. His work was always meticulous, his attention to detail exceptional, and it was a real pleasure to work with him.
