A collaboration with the Vancouver Children’s Choir
London’s famed Viol Consort, are heard in a selection of the Cries of London, in which music for viol consort is overlaid – sometimes comically, sometimes poignantly – with the raucous voices of 16th-century London’s street-vendors, mendicants, tradesmen and river-taxis.
“A fascinating, beautifully played programme … Fretwork addressed all this music with an easy-going virtuosity. In variation sets, the principal lines moved smoothly and easily from one instrument to the next, and in chordal music, the players produced a well-tuned, fully balanced sound with a delightfully tangy character.” — The New York Times
