Julian meets Thomas Goff the harpsichord and clavichord maker in the early spring of 1950. Studying Bach at RCM, Julian was a bit frustrated playing harpsichord music on a piano. A fellow student at RCM invites Julian to join him in a visit to Thomas Goff's home. Goff constructed harpsichords from the top floor of his home. Julian loved playing Bach on harpsichords and clavichords and soon became a regular at the house.
