Through most of the 17th century, a distinguished set of the English gentry cultivated the viola da gamba, or “viol”. These noble amateurs employed the finest virtuoso players and composers of the time to teach them, play with them, and compose music for them. This  patronage produced an esoteric body of repertoire whose refinement and power to move matches the famous poetry of the age, the works of Donne, Marvell, and Milton. Enjoy some fantasias and suites written by John Jenkins, Matthew Locke and Christopher Simpson plus the delightful Fantasy a 3 for “the Great Dooble Bass” by Orlando Gibbons. These works are scored for one treble and two bass viols, some with organ.
