Notes & Reviews:

The eleven consorts by William Lawes (1602-45) for harp, bass, viola de gamba, violin and theorbo are known collectively as "The Harp Consorts". Written during the time of the English Civil War this period in history not only put an end to the brilliant circle of artists and musicians assembled at the court of Charles l, for which these works were conceived, it also ended the lives of Charles and of Lawes himself, at the siege of Chester in 1645. This is the first complete recording of Lawes' Harp Consorts.
