4.0 out of 5 stars No Sweelinck. 1 Oct 2012
By MatteoN
Contrary to what is written on the cover of the booklet, this double cd doesn't contain Gould's recording of Sweelinck's Fantasia in D. (See the pic of the cd's back cover.)

Gould's recordings of Byrd and Gibbons are great and deservedly well-known.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of false advertising... 6 Mar 2013
By D. J. Krug - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
[Standard disclaimer for reissues - this review is about the reissue and not about the music, which is splendid]. Sony Classical has updated and reissued their earlier "Glenn Gould Edition" releases with this new line of "Glenn Gould Collection" releases in conjunction with what would have been the pianist's 80th birthday. This 2-disc set contains the Renaissance and (non-Bach) Baroque music, to include the wonderful Gibbons and Byrd pieces that were included as part of his "Consort of Musick" release. The earlier "Glenn Gould Edition" version of this disc also contained a newly-released piece (at the time), the 'Fantasia in D' by Jan Sweelinck. Now ... take a closer look at the cover of this newer release: go down the list of composers and one finds ... Sweelinck! But take out the disc(s) - no Sweelinck! Somehow this piece was dropped from the reissue. How frustrating, since you now have to either buy or retain the old release if you are a Gould completist.

4.0 out of 5 stars English Baroque and a wonderful harpischord 16 Dec 2012
By James F. Houle - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
An unusual look at the early baroque in England, including the German-born Handel. The Handel is quite brilliant and the marvelous harpischord sounds are transporting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great example of why Gould was so brillant. 29 Mar 2013
By Anapanasati - Published on Amazon.com
I find this to be a great example of what made Glenn Gould brilliant. Detours into rare areas and pulling off the results marvelously. The William Byrd and Orlando Gibbons is beautiful, the Handel (Harpsichord) is really strange (due to not having a proper technique on the instrument, but have great musicality and piano technique), Scarlatti is great (wish he did more) and the CPE Bach is something I have to hear again to understand more. The more I look into Glenn Gould, the more it seems that the current scene of young pianists is truly disappointing (to be polite). I could go on and on, but I find that in the long run it was good Gould did less standard repertoire because it freed him up to learn/record material like this.
