Those recordings are meant for my pupils to play with and listen to, but they are also a way for me to play those consorts myself.
Unfortunately I miss the right people to play them with in reality, so I keep doing it like this.
(I hope the listener doesn't mind)
The consorts were popular in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries
They played an important role at court and in households of the wealthy in the Elizabethan era.
John Dowland wrote many pavans and galliards for consort, but these pieces also can be played on the lute or viginal.
