The Times

Not one-fell-swoop listening, but if you don’t hear Jenkins’s 17th-century viol consort pieces at all you're missing a choice pleasure. Sixteen tracks offer six-[art fantasies, pavans, and In Nomines, all marked by long, tangling lines, quick changes, eccentric phrasings, and an emotional sate finely balanced between exuberance and menlancholy. Phantasm attack this still-neglected repertoire with passion and much-needed muscle.
