Giles Farnaby
Cousin of Nicholas Farnaby (c. 15601630), virginal maker. At this time, 'virginal' was a generic word that included the entire family of plucked keyboard instruments: the harpsichord, virginal, muselar and doubtless the clavichord, and it is for these instruments that Farnaby's compositions are best known.
