This week on Harmonia, we begin our 3-part celebration of the British-based viol consort Fretwork.
LeStrange Viols dedicates an entire disc to William Cranford’s consort music for 4, 5, and 6 viols.
We asked musician Alison Melville: "What are you listening to right now?" Also, music by Diomedes Cato, and a CD from The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado.
Music from a composer called the "Father of Musick."
The Royall Consorts, William Lawes' best known works in his own lifetime, are performed by Les Voix Humaines.
Two recordings of music by Handel and Lawes on the ATMA label, featuring American early harpist Maxine Eilander.
A recent ATMA label release of William Lawes' harp consorts and a Hyperion recording of songs and instrumental pieces by the Lawes brothers.
