JACOB VAN EYCK (1589/90-1657): 69 Selections from Der Fluyten Lust-hof.
Catalogue Number: 11J017
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: 143 selections make up the entire "Flute's Garden of Delight" and they take 9 CDs, which you can have on BIS, for around $108. Or you can sample the mere 69 recorded here last year. Although he was a professional campanist (no Quasimodo jokes, please), van Eyck would stand in a churchyard in Utrecht and play these variations on popular and psalm tunes for the delight of passersby. Technically demanding, these works are both loved and feared by professional recorder players. Bosgraaf uses 13 different types of recorder and there is an all-English, 68-page booklet included. 3 CDs. Erik Bosgraaf (recorders).
