Friederike ChylekWilliam Byrd: Keyboard Music
William Byrd (1539/40–1623) Friederike Chylek, Cembalo Instrument: Copy by Matthias Griewisch after Ioannes Ruckers, 1624

William Byrd’s output is particularly notable for the variety of its genres and structural principles. This is particularly evident in his unique keyboard music. The influence that Byrd also had on the development of continental keyboard music remains remarkable. Friederike Chylek follows up on her recent albums – From Byrd To Byrd (OC 1702) and Time stands still (OC 1864) – by performing Byrd's music on a copy of a 1624 Ioannes Ruckers harpsichord by Matthias Griewisch.
