Richard Egarr - One Byrde in Hande - MusicWeb International

One of MWI Recordings of the Year 2018 

The bells is a fine example of the care and clarity of Richard Egarr’s presentation. Here only he adds a 20-second opening not by Byrd to present a single bell toll and ground bass of two bell tolls over which ultimately shower a carillon of semiquavers. It’s patient, systematic yet glowing and in turn jolly, raunchy, excited, exultant and calmly fulfilled.
