John Jenkins (1592-1678) was both the most prolific and the most highly esteemed of English composers in the fifty or so years between the death of William Byrd and the rise of Henry Purcell. After his apprenticeship Jenkins became renowned as a skilled performer on the lute and viol, once playing to Charles I ‘as one that performed somewhat extraordinary’. As a composer Jenkins preferred the medium of instrumental music, and he wrote little else. He came to maturity in the 1620s, when the consort for viols was enjoying its heyday.

John Jenkins was remarkably long-lived; probably born in 1592, he died in 1678, so his long life covered some remarkable events in English history. Involved in court masques under Charles I, he lived through the Civil War, the Interregnum and the Restoration. Much of our information about Jenkins comes from later writers such as Anthony Wood and Roger North. The composer’s remaining works are considered in the second volume. Ashbee’s biographical sketch covers just under one hundred pages in a book of over three hundred pages. It presents a biographical introduction to the composer then concerns itself exclusively with the superb consorts for viols which dominate the early part of the composer's career.

During the lifetime of John Jenkins (1592-1678) the English enthusiasm for consort fantasias reached its peak. After a full biographical introduction, this volume focuses on the early part of Jenkins's career, when he composed dozens of fantasias for viols. Andrew Ashbee analyses the compositional techniques used in these contrapuntal works and shows how Jenkins perfected the form, combining 'a wonderful all-pervasive lyricism and a masterly handling of tonality'.
