The 17th century was a golden age of English music for multiple viols as composers wove together intricate strands of melody in compositions both intimate and expressive. The inventive fantasies of Purcell and others, along with stunning "In Nomine" settings—instrumental compositions based on a chant melody—were masterpieces of the genre. Fretwork, “the finest viol consort on the planet” (London Evening Standard), plays this resplendent music.
