    Question Hey, where's the Harpsichord music!

    I just thought it strange we do not hear much (if any) Harpsichord music! Not to harp on it long but how come?

    Re: Hey, where's the Harpsichord music!

    Last night I just recorded a harpsichord part on something I'm working on. It's not a solo, just part of a continuo. I'm now doing ensemble building on the strings, but as soon as that is done I'll be posting something that has some harpsichord in it.

    Alright, that's more like it! Got anything in a Christmas flavor?

    falcon1, when I read your post the first time I thought it was linking Styxx to a 3 part intervention program.

    Hi, my name is Styxx, and I really really like harpsichord music.

    Hi styxx
    how much can you take?
    On this one I was looking for a particular sound:
    1. The Harpsichord is doubled with low volume Harp to create a different room ambience and change the "size" of the harpsichord .
    2. Double with Pizzicato solo violin to give it a less metallic and still percussive attack.
    Plus, I wanted non existing dynamic changes...
    And this is what you get (direct to wave from GPO):

    ftp://213.189.138.53/BachDoubleConcHHP.mp3

    If you prefer a "normal" performance, here is the Suite for Harpsichord in Dminor from Händel:
    ftp://213.189.138.53/Haendel_Suite_F...In_D_minor.mp3
    warning: 7.6 mb
    Thats enough?

    Re: Hey, where's the Harpsichord music!

    I remeber the Adamms family, which was great. I just finished listening to the 3 part invention which was very well done and am currently listening to the Handel, which sounds great so far. tmonaghan posted something with harpsichord in it tonight and I just posted somethig on the demo page. So, Styxx, it looks like you got your wish.

    Well, I still remember how to play one of the harpsichord pieces I learned, so I've posted it over in the song files area of the forum.

    My apologies for the unevenness; ever since I got into MIDI, my keyboard technique's really suffered for neglect.
