Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of viol consort Fretwork and talks to founder member Richard Boothby. Repertoire includes music by Lawes, Bach and Senfl.

In the first of this weekend's programmes featuring the viol consort Fretwork, Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of the ensemble, and talks to founder member Richard Boothby. Since they formed in 1985 Fretwork has explored a wide range of music, from the core English consort repertoire, to arrangements of JS Bach's keyboard works, to commissioning many new works. Lucie and Richard chat about the ensembles diversity of interests and play music from some of their recordings. The programme also includes a look at how to compose for a viol consort, to coincide with the launch of this year's NCEM Young Composers' Award.
