St Cecilia’s Hall is the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland, dating from 1763. In 1968 it became home to the Raymond Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments. This already world famous collection was further enhanced in 2005 when the University of Edinburgh received the extraordinary gift of 22 historic keyboard instruments from Rodger and Lynne Mirrey; the galleries at St Cecilia’s Hall now house one of the two most comprehensive collections of early keyboard instruments in the world. John Kitchen’s demonstration recital couples music with instrument in a way that informs and entertains.

’’As a champion of the instruments in the Raymond Russell Collection in Edinburgh, John Kitchen’s previous recording shave drawn universal praise. This latest addition to his discography is destined, I am sure, to enhance his formidable reputation."
