By Cecie Stainer

Of Antwerp. In 1559 he is said to have sold to a musician sent by the town of Utrecht, " five violins enclosed in their case," for the sum of £72. The services of a professional player were called in, so that the quality of tone of the instruments might be fairly judged, before the sale was concluded, and for this and for the wine drunk on the occasion £6 more were paid.
