    I love the sound of the harpsichord - it's twangly jangly heaven.

    I do feel the same as some others, though, that I can get a bit bored if it goes on for too long solo - but I can listen forever if it's playing in a small ensemble, whether its continuo, or with a bigger share of the melody.

    One of my favourite composers for harpsichord is Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre:

    well, Im closer to the guys assuming that it becomes alittle annoying over time while you listen to it alone, thus no one says it's boring or hard to listen
    Its a part of that Baroque music and that time as well, no saying about how charming it can be if playing with something more than itself only
