Heart’s Ease

Heart’s Ease

Released on 30 August 1988

Fantasias, In Nomines and dances for viol consort from the late Tudor and early Stuart age, with Christopher Wilson (lute) and Paul Nicholson (organ)


…brims with the urgency of youth, edgy enough to be authentic without assaulting the modern ear and deeply felt as well as intense.


Also excellent is the record of English music by the viol consort Fretwork…this is sharp sauce after the gravy of viol consorts of yore.


Fretwork look set to popularise English consort music as never before.
