Phantasm - Jenkins: Four-Part Consorts - BBC Music Magazine
These little gems sparkle with contrapuntal bravura, each part bantering in felicitous conversation. Melodies flow like wine and dancing rhythms give way to fleeting moments of quiet reflection. Phantasm brings its distinctively light, luminous and spectral sound to these busy tapestries, and the consort’s translucent textures are enriched in sundry pieces by the velvet warmth of a chamber organ. In the fantasies, the players’ lithe articulation propels the music forward with graceful energy, while the two pavans are beautifully poised – tableaux of stillness midst the repartee.
