Huge apologies to Peter Barnes, and further apologies, and thanks, to David Davies (and several others), who sent us a note to say that we had got this all wrong. It is Peter Barnes who was tuning our harpsichord! Thank you, gentlemen (and others!).

And if you have ever wondered what tools a harpsichord tuner uses….
