DouglasCorr Posted May 22, 2006 Share Posted May 22, 2006 I don’t know if someone has already reported this information here and I missed it, but I have I’ve just come across these astonishing sites: Larips Bach tuning They describe how the embellishment at the head of the title page of Bach’s Clavierubung is actually an explanation of how to tune the keyboard! Much more intriguing than da Vinci code puzzles!! It was in everyone’s face all the time….. There is much else of interest on both sites! This seems to me such a wonderful breakthrough that it deserves more publicity. However, harpsichords can be tuned relatively quickly; I wonder how useful it would be for organ tuning – organs are generally out of tune most of the time to some extent – would the effect of the fine adjustments be lost?
