    Some Orlando Gibbons







    Orlando Gibbons PDF scores on WIMA, only the Fantasia of the above is there, but in an arrangement for 6 viols, could be an interesting challenge to arrange for organ!

    Found another Tomkins piece, but played on harpsichord. Written about the time of the death of Charles II and the civil war.

    Cheers MIKE.

    Very nice Mike. I enjoy the crisp tones of the harpsichord almost as much as I enjoy the organ. Tomkins was indeed a great composer.

    First heard it on Last.fm in an organ interpretation. From an Arkiv CD called "Vox Virginals" a mix of Elizabethan and Stuart period works on various keyboards, played by Rachelle Taylor, not a cheap one though.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the number of Tomkins works available on Amazon including a lot of his madrigals and other vocal works.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Very delicate piece, anonymous, organ and viols



    William Walond, the toccatta is quite lively!



    A Walond voluntary, had to increase volume a bit on this one.

    Cheers MIKE.

    William Croft, Sarabande and Ground in C min; more usually played on a keyboard, but I thought this rendition to be beautiful.



    A new one on me, Thomas Roseingrave Organ concerto in D major



    William Russell, voluntary on an old organ in NSW, maybe David (CT64) knows it

    Cheers MIKE.

    Maurice Greene voluntary



    Wilian Byrd, harpsichord



    Any comments about including harpsichord items here in the organ area? Many of the works from Elizabethan and Baroque were written for either/both.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks again for the added videos.Enjoyed. I do not recall ever playing any of these works. Organ Concerto in D reminds me of Handel works;liked the waloud toccata too.
