Notes & Reviews:

"This top-notch version by American harpsichordist Elizabeth Farr is especially welcome. Farr's style is sober and rich, which tends to match the book's contents -- My Lady Nevells Booke is inclined toward the solid and ambitious pavans, grounds, and fantasies of Byrd, with only the galliards paired with most of the pavans offering a more sprightly mood... The instruments used are unusual and will be a major attraction of the release for some buyers; they were made by Manchester, Michigan builder Keith Hill, and all have a big sound that fits Farr's style perfectly. One is a celebrated Italian instrument from 1658 that Hill restored; two are copies of Flemish instruments from half a century after Byrd's time; and one is the instrument later called a lautenwerk -- a lute-harpsichord, with a much more intimate sound than the other instruments used. The album was recorded in a hall in the small town of Manchester, near Hill's studio, and the ambiance is superb; small details of both playing and instrumental timbre emerge clearly." -All Music
