What was a lyra viol? Not so much a particular instrument, but more a style of solo playing that often included retuning the viol to allow its tone to ring out in a wide range of sonorous chords. Join Richard Boothby to explore this fascinating aspect of 17th century English music making, in a programme that presents dance suites and sets of variations from leading composers of the time, from Alfonso Ferrabosco and John Dowland to those working for Charles I and during the Civil War, including William Lawes and John Jenkins.
