Instruments at Epiphany: The Harpsichord

In 2010 a spinet harpsichord was donated by parishioner Bill Hoppin. It proved to be of insufficient carrying power in the church, so in 2014, Mr. Hoppin donated a full-size, Flemish-style, double harpsichord (two keyboards) from the workshop of Frank Hubbard in Boston. Its exterior finish was restored in 18th-century antique style under the direction of parishioner and antique specialist David Weatherford. It is currently at home in the church but moves easily to any location.
