I am English born and bred and educated (Lambrook, Rugby), but have lived in French-speaking Switzerland since 1971.
I am interested in many subjects, from antique arms and armour, philology and motor bikes to genealogy   and cooking (historical and modern), but the following are among the more important in my life:
• German renaissance prints (particularly by the brothers Beham and the Hopfer family);
• Renaissance music, particularly early keyboard music, and more particularly the English 'Virginalists': Byrd, Bull, Farnaby, Gibbons, Tomkins, Philips etc.
• Early drinking glasses.
• Early diaries and travel journals.
