Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, August 2009

Early baroque English music tends on the whole to be of the doleful variety—possibly to evoke a religious, sombre mood. This collection of works by Jenkins proves an exception in that respect: it’s on the lively, melodic side, and these fine musicians make the most of it. The combination of low strings and what sounds like a chamber organ provides a rich, full texture without loss of clarity. One of the selections is titled ‘MS Goess’—four movements in A Major, possibly a suite or a part thereof. I was not able to find a definition for the term (Goess) in any dictionary, but according to the notes, it may be a compilation of music by different composers. All in all, an intriguing and enjoyable disc.
