In memory of Bernd Fischer

We heard that we have lost Bernd Fischer last week, one of the finest craftsmen and maker of harpsichords which came as close as they could get to perfection.  He was our neighbour, sharing a workshop with Derek Adlam.  We learnt so much from him.  Perhaps the greatest benefit of moving our workshop to Welbeck was to have Bernd and Derek next door, for passing on knowledge, expertise, inspiration and encouragement.
