Product Description

The Fitzwilliam Virginal Book is one of the most important collections of keyboard music of the 16th century. Recorded to accompany the Folio Society’s publication Music at Court (also written by Christopher Hogwood), this collection was imaginatively distributed to the Society’s members, together with suitable vintages to accompany the literary titles. To suit the music – by Farnaby, Byrd, Philips, Peerson and Bull, together with anonymous compositions – the recordings were made on different keyboard instruments: virginal, organ, harpsichord and spinet. The recording received critical acclaim was a Gramophone Award nominee in 1983. This marks its first international release on CD. The booklet includes the original LP sleeve notes as well as a new introduction for the reissue penned by Hogwood himself

First class stuff, Chistopher Hogwood is a genius. Heard a part of the Fitzwilliam Vriginal Book on BBC radio 3 and immediately thought I had to buy it.
