Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10: 'Fans of Gibbons' keyboard music will definitely want this release.' Classics Today

'What sets this disc apart is Toll's insight, reflected in transparent textures, beautifully crafted lines, and a poise and involvement in the music.' BBC Music Magazine

'The organ playing is sweet...the harpsichord as light and fresh as air.' The Independent on Sunday

'This is a delightful disc.' Early Music Review

 

The well-chosen repertoire includes pieces performed on a single-manual Ruckers harpsichord interspersed with those played on Adlington Hall's restored two-manual 17th-century organ. A great keyboard virtuoso, Gibbons was also a fine composer of the Elizabethan ‘golden age'. Gibbons' writing displays a balance of phrasing and a fine sense of texture; the 24 pieces on this recording have been selected as illustrative of the core of this repertoire. The Fantasias are the most remarkable group of pieces, and are the ones where Gibbons best displays his contrapuntal skills, displaying techniques that clearly influenced the next generation of composers. Highlights include the title track, the Lord Salisbury Pavan and Galliard, and the famous Fantasia for Double Organ.
