Winning the Royal Philharmonic Society’s prestigious Chamber Music & Song award last May endorsed Fretwork’s reputation as ‘the finest viol consort on the planet’. Fretwork has revitalised the historic core of the viol repertoire and worked with composers to create new music for this most civilised of ensembles.   Two new In Nomine pieces are heard alongside earlier examples, including that by John Taverner from whose setting of the Mass the form originally came.
