Abstract

David Evans MBE (born 28 July 1936, died 8 Dec 2018) was a renowned British harpsichord maker who made a highly significant contribution in the revival of historical keyboard instrument making. He built over 50 instruments, mainly harpsichords and virginals, including a copy of the earliest surviving harpsichord: the late-15th-century upright harpsichord now in the Royal College of Music Museum in London.
