Exclusive Prime pricing. Thomas Tallis wrote 4, possibly 5, consort pieces, and this was continued by John Byrd, although he was very impressed by an Italian composer of consort pieces who became Elizabeth 1st's favourite composer, Alfonso Ferrabosco, Under James 1st, consort music continued with John Cooper, who because of Ferrabosco's reputation, renamed himself Giovanni Coprario! Under Charles 1st, consort music continued with the astonishing William Lawes, who was the greatest writer of consort music, This CD presents excellent renditions of his Fantasua-Suites for two violins, bass viol and organ.

CD 1. William Lawes Composer. Fantasia-Suite N. in G-, for 2 violins, bass viol and continuo Work. London Baroque Ensemble. in C, for 2 violins, bass viol and continuo Work. Lawes: Sonatas for Violin, Bass Viol and Organ.

Lawes: Fantasia-suites for two violins, bass viol & organ. London Baroque Harmonia Mundi 901423. Reissued as Harmonia Mundi "musique d'abord" 1901423. This recording consists of Lawes' complete Fantasia-Suites for two violins, bass viol & organ. These impressive pieces effectively anticipate the trio sonata, though the continuo (organ) part is more fully developed. They show Lawes' style, though they do not exhibit as much individual variety between suites as do his viol suites. These compositions have been unjustly neglected in the history of the violin in chamber music. The performance is quite impressive, especially the Stainer violins. There is also a recording of these pieces by the Purcell Quartet: Lawes: Fantasia-Suites.
