Focusing on the 'ayre', the central part of a masque, it offers a fascinating glimpse of the audacious and experimental virtuosity that is often absent from our image of English music of this time.
Inspired by the achievements of the 'Lutes and Voices', Kenny developed The Masque of Moments in 2015, highlighting the glories of little-known vocal music from the Jacobean and Caroline masque.
The 'lutes' plucked soundworld, of which this recording gives a hint, reflects a cornucopia of sounds used to create everything from a tavern scene to a reflection of paradise. The 'voices' come courtesy of Sophie Daneman, William Purefoy, Ian Wicks, Nicholas Mulroy, Giles Underwood, Rosanna Wicks and Salisbury Cathedral Choir.

"...Kenny has assembled a crack team. The lute-playing (from David Miller, Jacob Heringman and Kenny herself) is, as you'd expect, gloriously skilful and varied in texture, stepping foreard for occasional virtuoso solos... and the violins switch from court to country tavern in a heartbeat, making rough magic of the many anonymous dances. Soprano Sophie Daneman brings a career's worth of character to her contributions, and tenor Nicholas Mulroy balances Underwood's fruity comedy with some achingly refined melody-spinning... The Salisbury Cathedral trebles are an unexpected bonus, adding to the sense of genuinely collective, community music-making that gives this recording such personality and charm."
