Released on 30 August 1995

William Lawes: consort setts in five and six parts to the organ, pieces for lyra viol and songs to the lyra viol. With Catherine Bott (soprano) and Paul Nicholson (organ)

 

Fretwork are something special….The musicianship, vitality and penetrating expression are quickly evident. The neglect of Lawes is his own country is inexcusable; this disc will tell you why.

The Independent

Fretwork play with remarkable delicacy…a recording that I would wish to listen to again and again

Gramophone

A marvellous introduction to a composer whose music is still too little known…Fretwork do it splendid justice

BBC Music Magazine (Best 50 CDs of 1995)

…beautifully performed by Fretwork, who have the measure of this music perfectly…no less superbly played are the dances for lyra viol, performed by Richard Boothby
