Ward: Fantasies & Verse Anthems

Featuring ambitious and accomplished music for voices and viols, Ward: Fantasies & Verse Anthems offers a privileged glimpse of a special moment in English music history.

The four-part viol fantasies complement Phantasms previous recording of Wards five- and six-part works and show an equally fluent and skilful style exemplifying Jacobean consort fantasy at its best.

The Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford join Phantasm to perform Wards verse anthems which contain an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of textures and generous word painting amidst a polyphonic swirl of viols.
This recording is a fitting tribute to John Ward, whose efforts have been rediscovered in our own time and whose mellifluous music deserves a closer look.
