ESD#44: wanted: harpsichord player

Last night I dreamed that the Dirty Projectors hired me as a harpsichord player. I woke up thinking, "What's a harpsichord?" E played me some recordings, so now I know.

Sir Thomas Beecham was quoted describing the sound of the harpsichord as "two skeletons copulating on a tin roof." Seems a little harsh, no?
