All of the instruments have now been safely decanted from St Cecilia’s Hall. Under Jonathan and Darryl’s watchful gaze, the men from Constantine worked carefully and finished ahead of schedule.
Most of the keyboard instruments are now safely in store and we are grateful to colleagues in Special Collections for sharing their space with us. A couple of the smaller instruments will be slotted in at the Reid Concert Hall Museum so that our keyboards are not completely out of sight during redevelopment. Many thanks to all for making this stage of the process go smoothly.
The Euphonicon was perhaps the hardest instrument to get out as it is both tall and extremely heavy.
