Orlando Gibbons

Orlando Gibbons

Released on 30 August 1989

Fantasias and The Cries of London with Red Byrd and Paul Nicholson (organ)

 

…the sheer virtuosity of both Gibbons and Fretwork are little short of riveting.

Hi-Fi News and Record Review

Fretwork’s recording…is, as we have come to expect, performed with an admirable mixture of meticulousness and verve.

Gramophone

The standards they set in earlier recordings prevail again here: affection and respect for the music, a mixture of delicacy and robustness in the viol tone, variety of phrasing and illuminating voicing of textures: all are present in these performances. In the best English tradition, virtuosity is made to serve the music.
