A major new release from 2009 Gramophone Award-winning artists, FRETWORK. With additional contributions from Michael Chance and Sophie Yates. The first recording of the complete instrumental music of two unjustly neglected 17th century English composers, Martin Peerson and John Milton (father of the poet) Includes all the works for viol consort, all the solo keyboard works and the single song with viol consort accompaniment. 23 of the 25 items are new to the catalogue. A significant and invaluable contribution to the discography of 17th century English music in incomparable performances from some of the worlds finest artists in this field. Sadly this was one of the final recordings that Richard Campbell made with Fretwork before his death in March 2011.
