BHS and BCS view Christopher's instrument collection

March 25, 2010

The British Harpsichord Society and British Clavichord Society join forces to enjoy a day viewing Christopher's private collection.

 

Members of the BCS and the BHS arrived at Christopher's Cambridge house on 31 October 2009 to spend the afternoon viewing Christopher's personal collection of 16 clavichords and harpsichords. All the instruments had been tuned the day before (quite an achievement) to ensure that they were in optimum condition for the viewers, and the tuners and restorers of the antique instruments were on hand on the day to provide valuable background information.

Micaela Schmitz of the BHS wrote an account of the day for the BHS website. The full article is below.bhsandbcsvisitcambridge.jpg
