Soldt, Susanne van

Virginal Book


Guy Penson (virginals)
Patrick Deneker (recorder)


Dated 1599, the manuscript by Susanne van Soldt is a fascinating anthology of music for the virginal at the end of the Renaissance.

Born in the Low Countries but having also lived in London, the owner of this manuscript was therefore able to play the latest music of her time; the manuscript includes not only versions of famous pieces but also a fair number of Psalms in Dutch.

Guy Penson performs this anthology on a characteristically Dutch instrument, a 'mother and child' virginal: this virginal contains a complete smaller virginal within its resonance chest that can 'come forth from its mother's womb' and can be played either separately or coupled to the keyboard of the mother instrument.
