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.
