The exceptional viol quartet Phantasm, whose debut won a Gramophone Award, returns with an equally ravishing recording of the repertoire in which they excel, from the golden age of Elizabethan England. 

Originally released on Avie, Four Temperaments has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best recordings from Linn artists.

Download includes - cover art, inlay, booklet

‘...music and performances are consistently superb...' The Times

Editor's Choice: ‘Phantasm play with the kind of sympathetic interplay that you'd expect from a crack string quartet.' Gramophone

‘Another highly enjoyable, richly rewarding disc from the viol consort Phantasm.' The Independent

5 stars ‘Musical lines are gracefully shaped and articulated.' BBC Music Magazine

Four distinct musical personalities - or ‘temperaments' - are represented: the dissonant Robert Parsons, the cool Ferrabosco the Elder, the warm and sanguine Thomas Tallis, and the polar opposites of ecstasy and melancholy of William Byrd. BBC Radio 3's Andrew McGregor praised Phantasm's recording of the Mass in Four Voices played on viols alone: 'for stylistic insight and subtlety is ironically one of the most satisfying performances of Byrd's Mass.'
