Overview

Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625) has long been recognized as holding a leading position in English music of the seventeenth century.

It is therefore surprising that John Harley's Orlando Gibbons and the Gibbons Family of Musicians is the first full-length study to deal with his life and music since E. H. Fellowes's short book, originally published in 1923.
