Christopher Tye and Claude Le Jeune, like so many musicians of the 1500s, negotiated the seismic religious upheavals of their century, the Protestant Tye, conceiving his instrumental music during the turbulent reign of the Catholic Mary Tudor, and the Protestant Le Jeune under the protection of Huguenot patrons. Phantasm explores the diverse moods of Tye’s ‘In Nomines’ and pieces from Le Jeune’s delightful Meslanges et fantasies de violes.
