A bunch of videos I’ve scraped up from around the web…
Two brief takes from a session recording the newly restored Thomas Bolton virginals (1684) for Warrington Museum and Art Gallery.
John Blow – An Aire:
John Blow – Saraband
In rehearsal for a concert with Passacaglia at Finchcocks, Kent, UK in 2013.
Dornel trio sonata La Triomphante:
In concert with London Baroque at Tindal Villa, Bussum, Netherlands, in 2013.
Leclair sonata op. 2:
The harpsichord version of London to Brighton in 4 minutes – speeded-up tuning of a Goermans/Taskin double manual harpsichord. Although just a bit of fun, I use this in tuning classes to demonstrate the overall tuning process – setting temperament, distributing outwards across the pitch compass (with checks), and tuning unisons on other registers.

A promotional video with lots of recording session footage of Florilegium’s Vivaldi CD. I’m playing a superb Italian chest organ copy by Goetze & Gwynn.
A demo recording I made with John Shaddock, sub-principal trumpet at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London.
