'The players animate Lawes' stately dances with fleet rhythms, elucidate his dark counterpoint and create an aptly vaporous quality in his more haunting, ethereal pieces...The consort sound is luminescent.' 

Listed in the The Telegraph's '168 Best Classical Music Recordings'

Consorts to the Organ honours the celebrated English Renaissance composer William Lawes and includes a selection of the Five- and Six-Part sets, some versions of which are premiere recordings. These works, the pinnacle of Lawes' achievement, challenged the musical rules of the day; his imagination and ingenuity created remarkable and enduring music. Phantasm is joined for this recording by guest musician Daniel Hyde (organ).

Phantasm has been widely acclaimed for its previous recordings with Linn; its 2011 recording of William Byrd was named 'Disc of the Month' by BBC Music and its 2009 Linn debut of music by John Ward was described as 'stunning' by Gramophone. Critics have described their performances and recordings as 'intoxicating', 'revelatory', 'electrifying', 'interpretations pervaded by a truly burning spirit'.
