$17.99 (2CD)

World Première Recording

Dr. John Bull (1562-1628) has long held greater fascination and mystique than any other English composer of the Elizabethan and Jacobean period. Bull was legendary in his own day as the supreme virtuoso keyboard player and holder of the keys to the hidden mysteries of esoteric composition. With this first volume, his fascinating music is presented here in its entirety for the first time by harpsichordists Peter Watchorn and Mahan Esfahani.This release also represents the debut of a splendid new harpsichord by Zuckermann Harpsichords International, based on the 1642 Hans Moermans instrument now in the Russell Collection in Edinburgh.
