Composers

Notes & Reviews:

French harpsichordist Bertrand Cuiller has focused in recent years on the "virginalists," the name given to 17th-century English keyboard composers. Under the puritan regime, public entertainment became increasingly difficult, while Catholic church music was banned altogether. These gloomy circumstances nevertheless made it possible for keyboard music to flourish; one of its main proponents was William Byrd, who, with contemporaries including Peter Phillips and John Bull, composed a body of keyboard literature for amateur and virtuoso players suited to a variety of instruments from the small, relatively quiet virginal to the larger harpsichords and clavichords.
