Orlando Gibbons (1583 - 1625) was one of the most important and highly regarded musicians of his days, both as a performer on keyboard instruments and as a composer, particularly of polyphonic vocal music. The greater part of Gibbons’ output is sacred vocal music intended for practical use in prestigious places. In addition to services, he wrote a vast number of anthems, both full and verse, in many of which a consort of viols was required to provide an independent accompaniment. His output of secular vocal music was small compared to that for the church, and his only book of madrigals was published in 1612. Gibbons’ polyphonic madrigal style is nearer to his instrumental fantasias, but several of the compositions would appear to be solo songs with viol accompaniment, e.g. the famous song "The silver swan". On this SACD you will hear the first (!) recording of the complete "First Set of Madrigals und Mottets of 5. parts". The ensemble „The Spirit of GAMBO“ was glad to win the famous baroque soprano specialists Claron McFadden and Aleksandra Anisimowicz oThis very exciting Stockfisch production was recorded in the Doopsgezinde Kerk, Haarlem (NL), which is world famous for his special acoustics. Therefore we recorded the Gibbons sessions using a surround microphone setup. So we can offer besides the CD-Hybrid-Layer (16bit) also an DSD-stereo-mix and a 4.0 multichannel-mix. The 28 page booklet contains very detailed informations of early baroque music, the composer and historically informed performance.ver to sing the upper vocal parts.
