 Update me on new releases by Gibbons

Orlando Gibbons (12/25/1583 - 6/05/1625)

Orlando Gibbons belongs to the generation of English composers which followed that of William Byrd, 40 years his senior, who died in 1623. He was a chorister at King’s College, Cambridge, where his elder brother was Master of the Choristers, and later became a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, which he served as an organist and to which he later added the position of organist at Westminster Abbey. He wrote music for the Church of England, madrigals, consort music and keyboard works.

Church Music

Gibbons wrote some 40 anthems. Of these the verse anthem This is the record of John is one of the best known. The verse anthem, a peculiarly Anglican form of church music, contrasts a solo voice with passages for full choir; other fine examples from Gibbons include the Christmas anthem Behold, I bring you glad tidings, Glorious and powerful God and Sing unto the Lord, o ye saints. The eight-voice full anthem O clap your hands is a noteworthy example of another form of anthem, without the use of solo voices. Other full anthems include Hosanna to the son of David and Lift up your heads.
