Notes & Reviews:

This collection of spinets, harpsichords, virginals, fortepianos and organs is one of the most important of its kind in the world today.

“Edinburgh University’s Russell Collection is one of the world’s finest collections of early keyboard instruments. John Kitchen’s ongoing project to bring the musical exhibits to life through an ambitious recording series with the Edinburgh-based Delphian label is proving to be a supreme achievement every one a gem, as are Kitchen’s stylishly bright performances.” — The Scotsman
