For Two to Play

Melancholy and lightness with the English virginalists.


Inspired by Thomas Tomkin’s keyboard duet A Fancy for Two to Play, harpsichordists Yoann Moulin and Pierre Gallon decided to construct an entire programme around two manuals. Central to this is the work of the English virginalists who blossomed under the reign of Elizabeth I. The works of master keyboardists Holborne, Fairhill, Dowland and Byrd make this cosy excursion to golden Elizabethan England complete.
