Composer: Byrd, William
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Groningen, St. Martini
Software: Hauptwerk VIII
Genre: Renaissance
This setting in Ionian mode of a popular Elizabethan tune consists of the tune and only one variation (often there do appear more variations in Byrd's variation pieces). In the Fitzwilliam Virginal book this work is titled Wolseys Wilde, however this pieces has the title Wilson’s Wilde in other sources. I skipped the repeat of the variation.

I often like to try pieces from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book on the organ. Not every piece works, but in general, with some nice small registrations it sounds rather convincing (to me at least). Although, in this piece I picked a rather robust registration for the variation.
