Overview

My Ladye Nevells Booke of Virginal Music by William Byrd


A smaller version of the harpsichord, the virginal enjoyed wide popularity during the 16th and 17th centuries. Based upon a 1591 manuscript of keyboard works, this collection features 42 pieces in modern notation — a vast amount of neglected concert material for modern pianists and harpsichordists — plus historic and analytic notes.
