    Super performance Jerry thanks for that

    Here's one of my favourite LPs, Buxtehude this time, played by Lionel Rogg on a pedal harpsichord - in his will it was noted that Bach had two of these instruments which was quite something in those days (v expensive). Basically the pedal harpsichord was a full two manual harpsichord with a pedal board that had plucked bass strings slung underneath, intended as an alternative for organ practice (which pre-electricity required gathering an army of small boys to puff the bellows). In fact some of Bach's music is quite idiomatic for harpsichord + pedalboard, notably some of the 'instructional' organ music written by Bach senior for sons WF and CPE.

    Though clearly intended for organ, Buxtehude's music comes across wonderfully on this instrument and there's a Passacaglia here too. Unfortunately not currently available on Cd but some free downloads are available.

    There are some wonderfully low bass notes there.

    I remember whilst at university we played this on two sets of speakers: my own, a Wharfedale 8" driver in a 1 cu ft distributed port enclosure, and Lowther Acoustas with PM6 drivers.

    I fully expected the Lowthers to perform better than my speakers; indeed when the low note was reached my speakers distorted heavily producing a spluttering flatulent noise. However on the Lowthers, when the low note was reached there was complete silence! - the bass frequency was below the cut off of the Lowther horn design.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
