Still largely unknown today, Peter Philips was one of the finest composers to come from Elizabethan England and, afterWilliam Byrd, the most published in all the various genres of the time. This collection of harpsichord works, recorded on an original bar

Format: Audio CD
I had the good fortune to find this exquisite recording of the harpsichord music of Peter Philips (1560/61 -- 1628) at a time when I was feeling overborne and sad. This flowing, expressive but nonobtrusive music helped revive me. Elizabeth Farr performs upon a recently-restored 1658 Italian harpsichord. The instrument has a soft, lyrical and bell-like sound. Farr is a rising harpsichordist and organist. I loved her recording on Naxos of the harpsichord music of the French baroque composer, Elizabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre. This CD of Philips is equally lovely, and Farr also wrote the informative program notes.

Philips was a Renaissance composer who left England in 1582, based largely upon his Catholicism. He composed secular music up to 1609 when he became a priest. Subsequent to his ordination, he composed religious music, primarily motets.

The sixteen selections on this CD were composed between 1580 and 1605. Many of these works appear in the collection of English Renaissance keyboard music, the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Most of these compositions consist of keyboard arrangements (called intabulations) of French or Italian Renaissance madrigals. The madrigals are generally on the theme of love, and, as Farr describes them, of "being smitten, being rejected, and the double entendre pain of love's end." Philips did not simply transcribe the madrigals for keyboard. Instead he elaborated upon them by adding ornamentation, runs, and trills, and arpeggios to make them idiomatic for the keyboard. Most of them are in a slow tempo, in two parts, with many shifts of mood.

Sensitive and emotional but not overly sophisticated. That is how I would describe Philips music. This is my favorite recording of Philips keyboard music. This CD just grew on me. As time passed I kept reaching for this CD. I would love to hear Elizabeth Farr record Peeter Cornets music as well.
