This one has a really lovely thing, a pavan and galliard written for lute by Thomas Morley and arranged for harpsichord by Fedinando Richardson.

(The record is a good one for adjusting the subwoofer volume!)

Ferrabosco’s solo viol music is really serious contrapuntal stuff, the same sort of seriousness as Vincenzo Galilei‘s lute music. The performances by Biordi are unsmiling and inexpressive, objective. A very different approach is here

Lanvellec, haven’t worked out if it’s actually for sale yet!

10 breathless in nomines, organ recorded and played in a way which makes it sound like a portative. Bugger!

I’m drying my tears and comforting myself by listening to this

No worries. This is the Bull organ disc you (and ayone else) needs:



Played on an organ in an English church that survived in Normandy. How cool is that!  :D

It's out already? I guess for the physical CDs but waiting for it to reach streaming (if it ever will).

That's a shame, the audio samples sounded amazing.

Thilo Muster, I have mixed feelings with. Sometimes feels too straightforward, just like Bates Arauxo. I like Etienne Baillot more consistently.

Yes well I played it again this morning and it sounded much much better, amazing in fact, and it certainly is good to have the in nomines collected together as a cycle. So delete what I said yesterday and buy it. Sorry, but yesterday nothing sounded good. Am I the only person who that happens to? 

By the way, the service from Amazon.fr was exemplary. Delivered within five days from France to the UK, which was two days later than anticipated because it took longer than expected to get through customs. And then this morning I found this email

Yes! Loved the Walsingham variations especially.
Another very successful Walsingham on organ, I might actually like this even more than Rampe.

Listening now to the Rampe’s Christe Redemptor. There used to be a Walsingham Variations by Berben on YouTube using a harpsichord which I thought was outstanding. I’ll check that link later, I’m using an iPad right now and it means that YouTube is too full of ads for comfort.

Enjoying this this afternoon. The selection is very reminiscent of the earlier recordings that Colin Tilney made, things like Go from my window, in that the emphasis is on music which is melodious, rather than music which is intricately contrapuntal. Colin Booth’s harpsichord playing is noble, nuanced and expressive, and what he does with the music always sounds natural, organic. Well recorded and nice instruments - a good Byrd harpsichord CD for someone who wants just one in their collection, as it were, or for someone who wants to get an earful of what the music is like.

In fact Berben does a rather amazing Wallsingham on the Lanvellec CD

I’m sure this is not on anyone’s radar.
