View in Radio Times

by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
WE in this country are proud to remember that the foundations of keyboard music wore laid by sixteenth-century British musicians --Byrd, Farnaby, and the other Tudor and Elizabethan composers. Then this supremacy passed to the Continent. Scarlatti the younger was a great, pioneer in writing for the keyboard. He brought a new technique to harpsichord music, doing away with the exaggerated orna mentation then in vogue, and making the hands movo about the keys with greater freedom.
