Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Not a lot is known about John Jenkins’ early life; he seems to have had some sort of connection to aristocratic patrons in Norfolk (in Dereham and Hunstanton). He performed for Charles I and took part in Shirley’s masque The Triumph of Peace in 1634.
At first glance the music can be rather dense, but in the hands of a group like Phantasm textures begin to clear and we start to appreciate the balanced conversation between six equal individuals. Jenkins applies varied articulation and judicious use of exotic harmonies to guide us along the way, but as with all good conversation it is not so much the ending as the journey itself that is the point. On this disc, Phantasm play all of Jenkins six-part Fantasies along with two pavans
Read more and two In nomines...Despite the dark mahogany sound of the six viols, the players manage to keep a notable clarity of line...The recording engineers have caught the viols perfectly, giving them space and bloom without the unnecessary boom of the large acoustic.
Other groups have recorded these pieces interspersed with Jenkins’ music for other forces, to provide the listener with some sort of aural relief. But with performances like these, such relief hardly seems necessary. Just put the disc in the CD player, pour yourself a glass of wine, lower the lights and sit back and revel in the brilliant conversation of a group of old friends, familiar enough to take liberties but always balanced and civilised."
