Hans Meijer of the Musicks Monument Foundation in the Netherlands, which he founded to record remarkable and little-known music, has generously shared with Victorian Web this and other plates from site. These images appear in a DVD multimedia project involving musical performances by Alwin Bär, late Professor of Piano at the Utrechts Conservatorium. Readers may wish to visit the Roberts portion of Meijer's site, which has a large number of additional plates (including many details) as well as information about the DVD and links to other Musicks Monument projects, including medieval manuscripts and music from many periods. Readers can order the DVD containing the Roberts plates and accompanying music on the Foundation website mentioned above [GPL].
