Notes & Reviews:

This specially priced set brings together three previously released recordings of music of J.S. Bach as performed by the acclaimed English viol consort Fretwork. Included are the albums Alio modo, The Art of Fugue and The Goldberg Variations.

BBC Radio 3, 21st November 2015
An incredibly technically perfect recording ... Richard Boothby... has been very skilful and imaginative and inventive ... Fretwork do the most extraordinary job of maintaining that integrity between the parts ... it's extremely skilful.

The Independent, 2nd January 2016
Pieces such as the "Passacaglia" and the "Prelude & Fugue XVI" from The Well-Tempered Clavier adapt so smoothly to the strings' interplay, and so naturally within their timbres, that they might have been written for the then-unfashionable consort.
