INSTRUMENT COLLECTION

June 6, 2012

A check-list of Christopher’s collection of early keyboard instruments has been added to the web site (click here) and photos will follow soon.

One of the most gratifying aspects of such a collection is the opportunity it gives makers not only for restoration but for copying the more important instruments and giving them a second life. This has happened in the past with several replicas of the Bodechtel and Hass clavichords now in use world-wide, and recently a copy of the small German chamber-organ was made by Marcus Stahl, who was responsible for the renovation of the original in 1996 while working for the organ builders Goetze and Gwynn. He has now built a copy of this organ and you can hear it being played at YouTube.
