This program fills a nice niche, with old-fashioned viol consort music of the early-to-mid 17th century. The two extensive suites by the still-neglected Christopher Simpson are valuable. In addition, the 2-part Pavan of Jenkins is a fascinating piece; the remaining fantasias of Jenkins & Tomkins are selected to make a fine program. The "trumpet tune" of the unknown Withye is a set of variations on a tune sounding like a trumpet.
