Hello Stephanie,

I'm no expert on Orlando Gibbons. If I were you I should try to locate a 
copy of Gould's favourite recording: The Silver Swan with Deller 
Consort, rereleased on CD by Archiv Produktion. This will give you an 
idea how Gould perceived an ideal Gibbons' performance. When searching 
for it, I find at least three different titles with Alfred Deller, but 
only one complete album with Gibbons choral music.
