The virginal was a kind of harpsichord enormously popular in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and virginal books were all the rage, representing every important composer writing for that instrument---including such giants as William Byrd, Thomas Morley, John Bull, and Orlando Gibbons. The classic Fitzwilliam Virginal Book---a best-seller in its two-volume Dover edition, now in its 16th printing!---is considered the most remarkable collection of English keyboard music of the time. Now, all devotees of early keyboard music will welcome this attractive, slimmer compilation of the best-known pieces from the original Fitzwilliam set. These include such courtly dances as the galliard and pavan, ingenious preludes, fanciful fantasias, and more.
