Comments:M. Woollard said:

A delightful recording of the French suites performed on the instrument they were probably intended for. The French suites were originally issued in 1961. The CD is published in association with the British Clavichord Society by J Martin Stafford/ISMERON, 289 Blossomfield Road, Solihull, B91 1TH, UK. (I'm not connected with this firm - I just like the disc.)
