Matthew Locke: complete keyboard works

Charlston, T. (2003) Matthew Locke: complete keyboard works. [Audio]

Abstract

Matthew Locke was one of the leading English composers of the mid-seventeenth century and his music stands out for its bold treatment of musical ideas, clear melodic sense and unusual treatment of dissonance. His keyboard music occupies a very significant position in the development of both the keyboard suite and the English organ voluntary and represents the first flowerings of a truly baroque style in English music. On this CD Terence Charlston plays the organ of Trinity College, Cambridge, two harpsichords and an English Virginals. Liner notes to the recording also by Terence Charlston.
