Musical Giant of the Early 17th Century

Orlando Gibbons is Englands early 17th Century musically versatile genius.  Gibbons wrote a large quantity of keyboard works, including some thirty fantasias for viols, numerous madrigals including his legendary “The Silver Swan”, and many popular verse anthems.

His complete mastery of counterpoint along with an extraordinary talent for melody distinguish much of his choral music.

Favourite composer of the mighty 20th Century pianist, Glenn Gould, Gibbons work sounds simultaneously ancient and contemporary.
