Played and recorded by Nigel Deacon, May 2017

Much of the above music is from the baroque era and was written for harpsichord. The banjo pieces by F.G.Chapman were supplied by great-grandson Ian Chapman. F.G. was a banjoist with the ability to write a good tune; his advert from 1892 (37 Gt. Coram St, Brunswick Square, London) reads “Banjo taught in all styles, music composed, arranged and copied; several other instruments taught.“
