Glenn Gould gets some people in a very big way. I'm one of them - until now I had only his Bach piano pieces. When I became aware of his statement that Orlando Gibbons was his favorite composer, I had to have this set. Obviously they were not written for the piano, but Gould makes each piece sound fresh and wonderful. Some will almost break your heart. Gould's incredible ability to make the notes hang in mid-air is particularly well-suited to this repertoire. If you have enjoyed anything else by him, you owe it to yourself to buy this.

Glenn Gould's exquisite tonal control is no more evident than in these wonderfully inspired performances of William Byrd and Gibbon's keyboard music. This is one of my favourite CD among entire GG discography.

Another fine example of his amazingly sensitive pianism is his Wagner transciptions (Wagner: Siegfried-Idyll; Gould: Transcriptions from Wagner's 'Die Meistersinger' & 'Götterdämmerung').

Listen to this and compare with other versions to show the brilliance of Glen Gould in giving a totally new perspective to the music of Byrd and Gibbons. A good listening experience
