Notes & Reviews:

St. Cecilia’s Hall is the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland, dating from 1763. In 2005, the world-famous Raymond Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments was further enhanced when the University of Edinburgh received the extraordinary gift of 22 historic keyboard instruments from Rodger and Lynne Mirrey. The galleries at St. Cecilia’s Hall now house one of the two most comprehensive collections of early keyboard instruments in the world.

“As a champion of the instruments in the Raymond Russell collection in Edinburgh, John Kitchen’s previous recordings have drawn universal praise. This latest addition to his discography is destined, I am sure, to enhance his formidable reputation.” — Early Music Review
