Few other ensembles can match the range of Fretwork’s repertory, spanning as it does the first printed music of 1501 from Venice to contemporary music commissioned by the group. Their recordings of arrangements of J. S. Bach have won particular praise, but they have recently issued a disc containing music by Grieg, Debussy, Shostakovitch, Warlock and Britten.

This extraordinary breadth of music has taken them all over the world in the 25 years since their debut, and their recordings of the classic English viol repertory – Purcell, Gibbons, Lawes and Byrd – have become the benchmark by which others are judged. The consistently high standards they have achieved have brought music old and new to audiences hitherto unfamiliar with the inspiring sound-world of the viol.
