16th century English music for viols, including the complete consort music of Thomas Tallis
Many thanks to Fretwork – the English consort to watch – for having dignified the native In Nomine with a CD…The viol players of Fretwork play together beautifully in the contrasting homophonic and imitative textures that characterize this music; the treble playing is sweet and amenable to subtle nuances.
…one of the loveliest albums of English viol music I can remember hearing.
The care that went into the preparation of their programme is very evident in the excellent standards of intonation, balance and ensemble.
