About

Gordon Ferries’ fifth solo disc for Delphian spans two centuries of music for kings and courtiers. Performing on four instruments matched to the periods in question, and captured in sumptuous recorded sound, Ferries takes in the chansons and elegant counterpoint of 16th-century France’s cultivated humanist courts and the exquisite melancholy and refined dance forms from the private chambers of Louis XIV’s Versailles, and investigates the place of guitar music at the heart of the decadence, sexual intrigue and Baroque splendour of Charles II’s Restoration court.
