Now on harpsichord.
I just learned something new: a dual keyboard harpsichord.
During college, I ran an antique elevator in a music store, and we occasionally got in stock and sold a Neupert harpsichord. It had a smaller range keyboard than a piano, and had only one keyboard.
I am only guessing, but it looks like the purpose of playing this lower keyboard is to increase the volume of the harpsichord by having both keyboards play. Unlike a piano, striking the keys harder does not increase the volume.
Very nice. Especially the guitar version. Thanks for digging them out and sharing both!
