Thanks go to two very special friends of the Chalmers family for their part in this work. Dr. Stefano Dini who initiated this extensive resource for us with a whole year of amazingly detailed research and recordings in 2005. And to Rebecca Gibb MW who assisted in the renovation of these pages for their current iteration.
