Early Music Now (EMN 19-19)

The Golden Age of English Consort Music

English composers worked magic with consorts: ensembles made up of different sized instruments of the same family. On this week's show we'll hear music performed by viol consort, recorder consort, and even the so-called broken consort, where instrument types were mixed. Our composers include William Lawes, Matthew Locke, the mysterious Picforth, Byrd, Brade, and others.

William Brade: Paduana & Allemandi a 6 in G; Weser Renaissance Bremen

John Dowland: Lachrimae Gementes; Five Recorder Consort

Picforth: In Nomine a 5; Ensemble Celadon

William Lawes: Consort Set a 5 in c; Phantasm

Matthew Locke: Broken Consort in D; The Palladian Ensemble

William Byrd: Prelude & Ground a 5; Fretwork

William Lawes: Royal Consort Set No. 5 in D; Les Voix Humaines

William Byrd: Browning a 5; Fretwork
