Phantasm are one of the most exciting and best known viol consorts performing today. Founded in 1994, they catapulted into international prominence when their debut CD won a Gramophone Award for the Best Baroque Instrumental Recording of 1997. Since then, they have released ten further recordings, won several awards, and have become recognised as the most exciting viol consort active on the world scene today. Critics have called their performances and recordings: 'intoxicating', 'revelatory', 'electrifying', 'interpretations pervaded by a truly burning spirit'. Phantasm's latest CD, John Jenkins's Five-Part Consorts was released in 2007 and was a finalist for the Gramophone Award in Early Music, and for the MIDEM Classical Award in Early Music. This disc follows the success of Phantasm's 2004 CD of Orlando Gibbons Consorts for Viols which won a Gramophone Award for Early Music and was a finalist for Gramophone's Record of the Year. Since 2005 Phantasm has been Consort-in-Residence at Oxford University.
