One of the treasures of Auckland Libraries is the only known copy of The Harpsichord Master, an early form of tutor book for learners of the harpsichord or spinnet dating from 1697.

Peter Watts (Harpsichord) and Katharine Watts (Soprano) explore the music of the book, performing all the music in the Harpsichord Master together with some of the original works from which the pieces derived.

The original 1697 score will be on display in the Sir George Grey Reading Room for the month or August.
