John Jenkins, the leading English composer of instrumental music during the mid-17th century, performed at the Stuart court and spent much of his later years within easy reach of King’s Lynn, working for the Royalist Derham family at West Dereham, and the Lestranges at Hunstanton. Much loved for its tuneful grace, his music was widely copied and performed by those who chose to ‘fidle at home’ rather than be harmed during the Civil Wars. Tonight, Jenkins’ delightful ayres, pavans and fantasias for viols are interspersed with pieces by Tallis, Parsons and Byrd, the Elizabethan composers who established the fantasia style, dances and fantasias by his more extravert contemporary William Lawes, and by the extraordinary ‘Fantazia upon One Note’ by his successor Henry Purcell.
