Keyboard Music

A re-release of Christopher's recording of keyboard music by Orlando Gibbons (Catalogue Number: EXP 0006) has been named 'Recording of the month' on the MusicWeb International website. This is the first release on CD of Christopher's recording from 1975 of 22 pieces for keyboard by Gibbons.

The review, by Michael Greenhalgh, on the website sums this up as 'the classic recording of Gibbons keyboard music with playing unsurpassed by its successors'. To read the full review and see a full list of works click on the link below.

The recording has been issued by Explore Records - a new label that is releasing recordings that have been unavailable for a long time. Their initial releases are taken from the Decca catalogue, so watch out for any more of Christopher's recordings which may appear….
