This album explores rarely recorded music by John Jenkins (1592-1678) and Matthew Locke (1621/2-1677). These composers are typically associated with consort music, but Lidewij van der Voort and Fred Jacobs delve into their compositions for two instruments on their debut CD as a duo. Written during England's tumultuous Commonwealth era, the music featured on this album was intended for private society, providing solace and entertainment amidst the challenges of the time. Locke's music stands out for its adventurous style compared to Jenkins' more conventional harmonies, creating delightful contrasts within this album.
Intimate music, very beautifully played by both, on a Globe album that, as always, has been beautifully published.
