Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey from 1569 to his tragically early death from the plague in 1574, White himself was both a composer of choral music, including two notable sets of Lamentations, and a proficient organist and son of an organ builder. As keyboard works, the six fantasias are indeed fine examples of the motet style of writing for the instrument, and the length at which their material is developed, and its expressive weight, bear witness to White’s stature as one of the four or five leading English composers from the period preceding that of William Byrd. Reconstructed and edited by Paul Doe.
