I know, pianos were not there when these musics were delighting people's ears all around Europe, still I think this record is worth a try. Glenn Gould was a sheer universal genius: here each voice of these splendid poliphonics is so perfectly clear that I think this record should be used in classrooms too.

  1. Psychologically refreshing performance. Elizabethan music played with modern piano, why not, music is made alive by performers like Glenn Gould.
