Richard Church et al. in Clapham - 1910
from The Golden Sovereign, pages 46–47:
With a grimace that drew the muscles of his mouth sharply, as from toothache, Young Harry touched a key to give the tuning note. He played a few chords – and rapture flooded over me as though a caress had surprised me, touching the hair at the back of my head. The velvety tone of the Broadwood was softer, more woody, than that of our Klingmann; but it compensated by coming from an open grand – with that instant contact which is always just lacking in an upright piano.
