'The most remarkable, and in many respects the most valuable collection of Elizabethan keyboard music' (Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians). The close to 300 airs, variations, fantasies, toccatas, pavanes, galliards, allemandes and courantes in these two volumes include some of the finest examples of Elizabethan and Jacobean Music: Morley, Gibbons, Farnaby, Warrock, Ferdinando Richardson, Peter Phillips, Tomkins and practically every other composer of the virginalistic school. John Bull and William Byrd, two of England's greatest composers are represented by over 100 works. The pieces herein, while composed for the virginal, can be played without difficulty on the piano or any other keyboard instrument. Maitland and Squire set the music into modern notation, preserving faithfully the intent of the composers.
