A Major (22-year or 5,000,000 note) Service of my Flemish Double Harpsichord
I have now migrated most of the pages from the old site and in the process have updated and improved them. There are also new pages (see sidebar) and the rest will follow soon.
Now that this is done, I am continuing with servicing my harpsichords. To begin with, restringing with the more authentic wire now being produced by Steven Birkett in Canada, and cleaning 22 years of grime from David Higgins’ unique soundboard painting.

Playing Sound Files
Audio playback on this site uses the HTML 5 audio console and offers two alternative filetypes, Ogg Vorbis and MP3. These have been tested on IE9, Edge, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome and Dolphin (Android). If it supports it, your browser will play the Ogg Vorbis file in preference; otherwise the MP3 file. Unless your browser does not support either of the two formats (e.g. if it is an obsolete version), you should see below this message a console which will play a brief tune.
Please contact me with corrections or problems with the display of any of the pages on this site.
