Stephen Adams has been involved with the National Concert Hall organ since its installation in 1991 (...) The organ itself has been a fantastic asset to the hall and the craftsmanship involved is quite extraordinary again down to Stephen and his meticulous work and preparation. The organ to this day has been a great success story and some of the world’s finest organists have expressed their pleasure at having had the opportunity to play such a fine instrument (…) Stephen is our Mr. Reliable and I think it certainly shows in the magnificent organ in the National Concert Hall.
— Paul Hunt, Stage Manager, National Concert Hall
Stephen is a superb organist and he is very reliable, honest and hard-working. This was borne out by his organ building company when they rebuilt the organ on a balcony at St. Mary’s Church in Navan. This work was carried out meticulously, on time and to our utmost satisfaction, and the follow-up maintenance and service afterwards was excellent. (…) He is very dedicated to the task at hand, he is very helpful, explains well, outlines the options, makes suggestions, gives his opinion and offers appropriate schedules of work; no task is too great for him.
— Revd John Clarke (Rector), Navan Union of Parishes
Mr. Adams was most helpful in understanding our requirements, in providing us with appropriate technical advice, in completing the work ahead of schedule and was very pleasant to deal with at all times. As we approach the centenary of the installation of the organ, we are pleased that our endeavour to maintain the heritage of the organ has been achieved through Mr. Adams’ work for us.
— Rev. Denis Campbell, Minister St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Blackrock, Co. Dublin.

"I know I speak for everybody concerned when I say that we are very pleased with the rapid progress which you have made with the organ refurbishment to date. This has exceeded our expectations (your industry does not have a particularly good record on this!)"

I did want to take this opportunity to thank you and Aidan for all of the hard work, dedication and sheer enthusiasm which you both gave to the restoration work. The overall reaction by those closely involved with the choir and church music has been most positive. I’d also like to congratulate you for having the ability to deal with the various additional requests which were raised during the project in a most positive and co-operative manner while still managing to complete the work within the agreed timescales and within budget. We now have an instrument which has been significantly enhanced and upgraded in terms of its musical quality. From all of us in St. Patrick’s Parish a very big thank you to you both for making our organ an instrument which we can be very proud of.
— Henry Rooke, Hon. Treasurer, St. Patrick’s Church, Dalkey, Co. Dublin
Messrs. Adams and Scanlon displayed a high level of professionalism and sensitivity. Work was completed in a timely fashion with a minimum of disruption to our daily liturgical routine. (…) Members of the Carmelite community and those who come to worship with us have all responded with enthusiasm to the newly restored instrument which has brought a new freshness and vigour to our music-making.
— Revd. Simon F. Nolan, O.Carm.; Sub-Prior; Carmelite Community Gort Muire, Ballinteer, Dublin 16
