 Got me what I wanted! July 18, 2012 By Richard Cummings (Mansfield, MO) See All My Reviews "This title is getting difficult to find. I am a Registered Piano Tecnician, and wanted to hear some of the historic temperaments now available on the better Electronic Tuning Devices. Though this CD was back-ordered, ArkivMusic finally dug it up for me and now I have it. Thanks!" Report Abuse
