Joan Cabanilles: Keyboard Music, Volume One: Eleven Organ Pieces

Much of the music of Joan (or Juan) Cabanilles (1644–1712) is as virtuosic and colourfully Baroque as that of his northern contemporary, Dietrich Buxtehude, though it is also touched with a distinctively Spanish intensity. He is claimed as the most prolific of all composers for the organ, and publication of his works, begun in 1927, is still under way. The surviving manuscripts can be seriously corrupt, requiring extensive editing and sometimes even detailed recomposition. This is the first in an ongoing series of recordings designed to restore a great Valencian master to his unique glory.

Timothy Roberts, historic organ (1724) of the Basilica of Sant Jaume, Vila-real (Castellón/Valencia)
