My sincere gratitude to the National Music Museum (USA), for their kind invitation to make this debut recording of one of their oldest treasures; to Cleveland Johnson and John Koster for their trust and support throughout the recording process and to Jonas Niederstadt for his patience and dedication.
A special thanks to all those who made this recording possible by supporting the crowd-funding campaign launched in 2015, either financially or by helping to spread the word. Without them, this project would not have been possible:
