Purcell's fantasias are relatively early works, apparently written largely as contrapuntal studies. Unlike the sonatas, they were never intended for publication, but they do represent some of the most complex music written for viol consort. By Purcell's time, music of this type was no longer a living tradition, and in fact his In Nomines were the last examples written before the 20th century.


This is music of the shadows; music of sublime subtlety. It is candlelit and wood-grained; intimate to its core. It is music of solitude that has never encountered an electric light bulb let alone an amplifier. (No small irony in an exquisite sharply etched digital recording such as this).
