Fretwork by Nick White, Iestyn Davies by Chris Sorensen
There is an otherworldly beauty to the warmth and clarity of a voice blending with viols, and when Iestyn Davies is singing with the viols of Fretwork, the results are unsurpassed. The Independent said, “Iestyn Davies sings with rapturous virtuosity and uncanny beauty,” while the Evening Standard (London) proclaimed “Fretwork is the finest viol consort on the planet.” These early music luminaries share the pristine beauty of songs and instrumental works by leading composers of the Renaissance and Baroque.
