Product Notes

This remarkable collection of works for the virginal, or small harpsichord, is found in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. It is the largest collection of Elizabethan and Jacobean keyboard music, all handwritten and totaling nearly 300 compositions, all of which predate the first keyboard music published in England by about 50 years. Volume 1, recorded in 2010, in a series of recordings of the complete Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, a fascinating project and the first of it's kind. Pieter Jan Belder, one of the most respected harpsichordists of today, has taken on this huge project. His "track record" includes the highly praised recording of the complete 555 Scarlatti Sonatas.
