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. This full set of eight instrumental parts includes two versions of the two middle parts, in both C-clefs and transposing G-clefs.
