 Church music - Orlando Gibbons
Gibbons, organist of the Chapel Royal and Westminster Abbey was pretty well the most highly regarded English musician during his short life (he died at 42).
Most church musicians will be familiar with some of his great hymn tunes, but it is surprising how little Gibbon's anthems and services are now performed - they merit revisiting.
Gibbons is often better represented in the hymn book than in the serious music of a service - and this CD helps demonstrate why that's a shame.

He was born in Oxford, and held positions as Organist of the Royal Chapel, as keyboard player in the privy
Together with his colleagues -- the composers Alfonso Ferrabosco II, John Coprario, and Thomas Lupo -- Gibbons pioneered new scorings and approaches in consort music which would lead to a repertory eclipsed in volume and depth only by the works of the Viennese School.
It was presumably due largely to his influence that organ accompaniment became standard in consort works for strings.

 ArkivMusic | Gibbons: Second Service, Etc / Ives, Harrold, Harvey, Et Al
Right from the beginning--the classic verse-anthem This is the record of John--we're treated to the full magnificence of Gibbons' style, from the expressive countertenor solos to the lush choral passages and the overall text-affirming harmonic framework.
All of the works on this disc show evidence of Gibbons' genius, specifically the careful planning of counterpoint to support text, to preserve harmonic stability and balance, and to create powerful, arching dynamic structures, this alternating with solo-voice passages and stretches of solid homophonic blocks of sound for choir and/or instruments.
After years of listening to and performing Gibbons' church music, I can truly say that at last here's a recording that does full justice to these splendid yet often routinely rendered scores, and although it may be too early to make such pronouncements, this definitely is a disc-of-the-year contender.
