The Fitzwilliam Virginal Book is the most important source of keyboard music from the periods in English history called the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods. It includes music dating from appr. 1450 to 1610 by composers like John Bull, William Byrd, Orlando Gibbons, Giles Farnaby, Peter Phillips, music by unknown composers and some from the continent of Europe.

"Virginal" was a small keyboard instrument of the harpsichord (Cembalo) family. It was popular in Northern Europe and Italy in the late Medieval and Renaissance periods.
The first mention of a virginal in written document is dated around 1460 and in England about 1530 when King Henry VIII purchased the first instrument for his court.
The original manuscript is in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England (thereby its name), and the first modern editioan was printed in 1899 by Breitkopf & Härtel and edited by J.A. Juller Maitland and W. Barclay Squire.
A complete republication in two volumes are available from Dover Publication.
From this large collection of pieces, appr. 300, Peter Klemke has selected a number of pieces and arranged them for mallet duos.
