The Keene and Brackley spinet kit has become a finished Storrs bentside spinet. This will save me making the kit myself, so I can start to finish my English harpsichord instead. 
 A newly acquired Zuckermann Flemish single has be booked up for concert hirings - the conductor at Cirencester's B-minor Mass found it too loud for the modern orchestra and large choir! There is another hiring at Bath Abbey in June.
If you're like us, the windows are opened in this hot weather and plenty of cool, humid air circulates in the house. Its great - but do check the pitch of your harpsichord. It will tend to creep upwards and if left could raise by up to a semitone. This almost doubles the tension on the case - sometimes with terrible results!
