LeStrange Viols was formed in 2014 to record the modern premier of William Cranford's consort music. By that time the musicians of LeStrange had already established themselves as a crack team of American consort players. Their many previous appearances together in diverse musical combinations and their experience in acclaimed American ensembles allow LeStrange to craft refined and vigorous performances of intricate gems of the consort repertory. LeStrange’s debut CD made The New Yorker’s list of notable recordings of 2015. LeStrange Viols takes its name from an important manuscript collection assembled by the 17th-century English nobleman Nicholas Lestrange.
