359pp, 9 b/w illustrations, 148 music examples, discography. 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 works and shows how Jenkins perfected the form, combining 'a wonderful all-pervasive lyricism and a masterly handling of tonality'.
