Acclaimed harpsichordist records new disc in Colyer-Fergusson

Last Wednesday proved another milestone in the life of the Colyer-Fergusson building, when the first CD to be recorded in the Hall arrived on our desks.

WP_20160315_003In August 2014, the internationally-renowned harpsichordist and conductor (and Honorary Graduate of the University of Kent) Trevor Pinnock spent two days recording works by Cabazon, Byrd, John Bull, Sweelinck, JS Bach, Frescobaldi, Handel and Scarlatti. It was wonderful to hear such amazing music drifting over the Hall relay into our offices and we were even invited to sit in on some of the takes. The extraordinary acoustics of the Hall proved so sympathetic that Trevor and the recording team actually finished a day early.
