    "Three-Manual Labor"

    Harpsichord fans,

    I have written a piece that demonstrates the three distinct sounds of the GPO harpsichord. It's as though the keyboardist is playing a harpsichord with three manuals. I believe that a three-manual harpsichord actually existed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It was scarce and very expensive.

    (Yes, I know. Manual Labor is the President of Mexico.) Groan.

    This is "Three-Manual Labor". The manual changes occur at 01:22, 02:03, 02:41, 03:20 and 03:56.

    Regards,

    Larry A.

    It's a joke...a bad joke that has been around for a long time. Manual (actually Manuel) is a common first name in Mexico.

    Lovely composition! I love the constant eighth note movement. Very nice! Oh . . and the harpsichord sounds awesome as well!

    Thank you, Sir.

    I think that I'm trying to help the harpsichord make a comeback.

    My best,
