    Some Harpsichord tracks

    Elaine Comparone, My Lady Carey's Dompe, Anonymous C1525

    Rameau Les Cyclopes (I'm sure Elains uses more than 2 hands here!)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9jV4_tEtXQ&feature=plcp

    Some background on the workings of a harpsichord

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JqP5qKn8r4&feature=plcp

    and what would a collection of harpsichord tracks be without Scarlatti

    Cheers MIKE.

    Very enjoyable. I always enjoy hearing the harpschord being played.. only one I get to play is my electronic one on my touch sensitive digital piano:but not too bad a sound either. Thanks for posting.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    If you have the time, here are two long vids

    2 hours+ of Rameau transcriptions for 2 harpsichords, beware though find something else to do for the first 14 minutes before the performers appear!

    2 hours of Scarlatti
