Notes & Reviews:

Employed as "musician in ordinary for lutes and voices" at the court of Charles I, English composer William Lawes (1602-1645) is most admired today for his sublime suites for viol consort. His less familiar solo repertoire for lyra viol is performed here by Richard Boothby on the best preserved instrument of the period (Richard Meares, c. 1647-1725) which is now part of the Kessler Collection in the museum of the Royal College of Music, London.

The Guardian
Boothby's handling of them on bass viol is supple and genial if a little careful and reverent: all except one of the 34 pieces on the disc are dances, but he makes them sound more like gentle meditations. It is a sumptuous album - but don't be fooled by the dancing shoes on the cover.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
Lawes's music is in general jolly and introspective by turns. Boothby plays in a charmingly gentle, often elegant yet spare way that suggests he is enjoying a private pleasure which we are nonetheless invited to savour... the delicacy with which Boothby phrases and ornaments the music is sublime.
