The Fisk Harpsichord

St. Thomas Aquinas church is fortunate to have a 1980 Peter Fisk French double harpsichord at its disposal for use in services and in performance with period ensembles. The Fisk harpsichord has choirs at 8’, 8’, and 4’ pitch, a manual coupler and a buff stop. The gilded harpsichord features a matching Louis XVI stand with gilded fluted legs and rosettes.. The sound board painting is by William McCarter, formerly of the University of North Texas Art Faculty.

This beautiful instrument is played regularly at masses and concerts, and is used regularly in performing solo harpsichord repertoire, chamber music sonatas, and as continuo for chamber ensembles.
