Harpsichord Concert - English Virginalists and Visitors

The Virginalists were a group of English composers from the late 16th and early 17th centuries, associated with Queen Elizabeth I. }Virginal" is an old term for a plucking keyboard instrument, or harpsichord, with a rectangular shape, called such “because, like a virgin, it soothes with a sweet and gentle voice.” Handel was born in Halle, Germany and stayed in Italy before settling in London (1712) and becoming a naturalized British subject in 1727. Haydn was a lifelong resident of Austria, but visited England twice, where he led highly successful concerts and composed and published a number of his best known works. J.S. Bach never visited England, indeed he didn't travel further than 250 miles from home. However, there is a possible English connection: his first set of six suites were supposed to have been composed for an Englishman of rank.

David Clark Little studied Organ, Harpsichord and Composition at the West Chester State University, PA, and in the Netherlands, at the conservatories of Hilversum, Amsterdam, and Utrecht. Several of his teachers were well-known, including harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt; and organist Keith Chapman. He has performed widely solo and in ensembles such as Tactus Baroque Ensemble, The Academy conducted by Frans Brüggen, The Netherlands Vocal Ensemble conducted by Rudolf Grasman, The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra under Lev Markiz, and La Fiocco led by Lewis Baratz; in the USA, the Netherlands, France, and Indonesia. Currently he is Organist/Choir Director at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Doylestown, PA and teaches organ, harpsichord, and piano. Running a private studio, he produces CDs with the Adnarim label. Among these are his performances of harpsichord Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti; and his own arrangement of the Goldberg Variations by Johann Sebastian Bach.
