Joseph Gibbs (1698–1788), organist in Dedham and Ipswich, has a variety of compositions to his name including these five voluntaries. Voluntary 1 begins with a fine Adagio, a beautiful, heavily ornamented melody, followed by a spirited Allegro. Voluntary 2 is more adventurous, with a 24-bar Allegro, a fugue, a moderato movement, and ending with another fugue. There is an interesting ‘Double Voluntary’ in the conventional two-movement form, the second a lively trumpet piece, and then two single-movement voluntaries. This is a welcome addition to the increasing amount of music available from this period. Trevor Webb
