Andreas Linos with his model of Thomas Mace’s Musick Room

This weekend we were visited by Skip Sempé and Andreas Linos. Here Andreas is explaining his model of the Musick Room proposed by Thomas Mace in his Musick’s Monument of 1676, which was to have had a table organ at its centre, an ideal space for the musicians to perform, and galleries for listeners to earwig on the music. This was at a time when musical performance was rarely provided for an appreciative public.
