‘Fantasia’ is Fretwork’s eleventh release with Signum Classics, and explores the court music of Tudor England through the works of Thomas Lupo.

A very large quantity of Lupo’s private and intimate viol consort music has survived, and we can marvel at its variety and quality. He wrote for unique combinations of viols in his three-part Fantasies, however the five and six-part fantasies are his most impressive work, serious and compelling pieces showing a fabulous command of counterpoint.

In 2021, Fretwork celebrated its 35th anniversary. In the past three-and-a-half decades they have explored the core repertory of great English consort music, from Taverner to Purcell, and made classic recordings against which others are judged.
