5.0 out of 5 star rating 5.0

LABELS: Hyperion
WORKS: Keyboard music
PERFORMER: Davitt Moroney (harpsichord, virginal, organ, clavichord)
CATALOGUE NO: CDA 66558 Reissue (1999)
When Moroney’s mighty project – all 127 Byrd keyboard pieces – appeared 18 months ago, I regretted only that a seven-CD set might prove daunting. Here, now, is a clever selection featuring all six of his instruments, including the captivating muselar. Essential listening. George Pratt
