Complementary to MB96, the 85 items in MB102 complete the coverage of the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book in Musica Britannica. With the exception of four pieces by Sweelinck available elsewhere, MB102 contains all the Fitzwilliam content not otherwise already published in individual MB virginalist-composer collections or in the three anthology volumes, MB1, MB55 and MB66. In addition, there are ten pieces from another important keyboard source in the collection of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum, the Tisdale Virginal Book. The volume was a long-time project of the late Christopher Hogwood, and has been brought to completion by his co-editor Alan Brown.
