Product Description

Matthew Locke was one of the leading English composers of the mid-C17th 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.

As a solo harpsichordist and chamber musician Terence Charlston has toured extensively within Europe, as well as to Japan and the USA. He is currently pursuing various recording projects with Deux-Elles, Channel Classics and BIS. Terence is a member of the ensemble London Baroque and teaches at the Royal Academy of Music. On this CD he plays the organ of Trinity College, Cambridge, two harpsichords and an English Virginals.
