    At the time of the publication of his book, Three Centuries of Harpsichord Making, in , Ralph Kirkpatrick wrote that "he unquestionably knows more about the history and construction of harpsichords than anyone alive today". He developed a harpsichord in based on a Pascal Taskin instrument of which was sold as a do-it-yourself kit. Antwerp was the harpsichord-making center of northern Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. The earliest examples of harpsichords had only one keyboard and one or two sets of 8′ strings. The progressive Flemish makers added a second keyboard and another set of strings, tuned an octave higher than the others, which allowed a wider range.
