Harpsichord Appreciation Day

In appreciation of the beautiful and at times, eerie sounds created by the harpsichord, my favorite musical instrument of all time. This is for all the times that snobby musicians have scoffed at the Baroque instrument, misunderstanding its importance to the world of classical music, and loathed it's sounds, and in the words of one friend reiterating famous musical conductor Sir Thomas Beecham, said that "the sound of a harpsichord" was like "two skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm" --this is for you Harpsichord, y'ole rebel.

Playlist below that will hopefully convert you to the excellence and musical delight of the Harpsichord!
