There is barely another instrument to combine both zeitgeist and timelessness in the way a spinet does: Despite being around for centuries already, its sound is still relevant in many musical territories, while at the same time being inextricably connected to the musical works of its time. The brilliant timbre comprises lots of majestic warmth and elegance as well – something often underestimated due to cold and sterile sounding spinet simulations of current keyboards and samplers. The English Spinet library features an instrument built by Thomas Hitchcock in London in 1718. Hitchcocks instruments are widely known as the best-sounding spinets ever built and pointed the way ahead for all spinets to come. Only about 36 of his masterpieces are preserved to this day.
