  • A beautifully illustrated selection of historical musical instruments from the collection of St Cecilia's Hall, Edinburgh
  • The Music Museum is the University of Edinburgh's first visitor attraction and the concert hall is a popular music venue in its own right, having been in continuous use since 1762
  • Engaging and accessible text captures the imagination regardless of prior historical / musical knowledge
  • St Cecilia's Hall is benefitting from new interest after a Heritage Lottery funded £6.5 million renovation, which reopened the venue to the public in May 2017
