Fitzwilliam Virginal Book



Francis Knights performed the complete Fitzwilliam Virginal Book on a variety of instruments (Italian harpsichord, Flemish harpsichord, Italian virginals, muselar, spinet, ottavino, clavichord, organ and chamber organ) in a decade-long series of 30 recitals; it was completed in October 2019 with a Byrd harpsichord recital at the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Following this, there will be a series of concerts with the complete Lady Nevell's Book by William Byrd, in 2020, followed by other virginalist collections, and the remainder of Byrd, Bull and others.
