Repertoire includes works by Byrd, Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, Greene, Couperin and Forqueray. Photographs and descriptions of all nine instruments enhance the booklet. An essential purchase for early keyboard enthusiasts worldwide.

"a recital that is both entertaining and instructive"

"I have had much enjoyment from this disc and happily recommend it, not only to lovers of old keyboard instruments, but also on account of the music, which includes a number of striking and unusual items. The booklet gives a history (and a photograph) of each instrument and notes on the music. The recording, admirably clear and with a natural sound, is excellently managed."

"The CD amply displays Kitchen’s talents across the range of instruments and repertoire and makes fascinating listening for early keyboard enthusiasts."
