Christopher Gibbons (01/01/1615 - 01/01/1676)

Son of Orlando Gibbons, Christopher Gibbons served in the Chapel Royal under Charles I, was organist of Winchester Cathedral until the destruction of the Commonwealth period, and returned as organist and virginalist in the Chapel Royal under Charles II. He left vocal and instrumental music, the former for the Church of England and the latter in the form of consort and keyboard music.

Church Music

Gibbons wrote verse anthems among settings of English and Latin texts. These continue the form in which his father had excelled, but generally with organ or continuo accompaniment.

Instrumental Music

Christopher Gibbons also continued the tradition of English consort music in a series of instrumental fantasias for viols, sometimes with violins, and left a relatively small number of keyboard pieces, including organ voluntaries and verses.
