Title: Complete Works III: String Consort Music AB5 cover
Composer: Martin Peerson
Editor: Richard Rastall
Reference: AB5
Price (GBP): 8.75 (score); 24.00 (parts)
Description: This third volume of Martin Peerson's complete works contains the sixteen instrumental consort pieces—eight fantasias and eight almains—known to be by him. All but one are in six parts: two treble instruments, two tenor and two bass; the other is in five parts and dispenses with one of the basses. Peerson himself would have expected them to be played on viols, but performance by other instruments is also possible. The sectional fantasias juxtapose contrasting styles in an imaginative and enterprising way, while the almains are stylised dances on a smaller scale. Score xii + 84 pages, ISMN 979-0-57039-142-4. Set of eight instrumental parts (with the two tenor parts in both C-clefs and transposing G-clefs), ISMN 979-0-57039-145-5.
