One of my great loves is baroque music, particularly music from the seventeenth century. Going along with this is my love of the purity of meantone tuning. One of my pipe organs is tuned in 1/4 syntonic comma meantone temperament. See the entry under “Church organ”.
The Genevan Consort is a group of amateur musicians dedicated to performing early music (16th to 18th centuries) under my direction. See their website at
My first instrument when studying music at university was originally the double bass. I have recently come back to this instrument in the form of a 6 string G-violone (an early form of double bass).
