Viola da gamba Treble by Henry Jaye I

London, early 17th century

Catalog 77. Viola da gamba, treble, Henry Jaye, London, ca. 1620

Henry Jaye is considered to be one of the most outstanding makers of viols in Jacobean England, particularly suited for the performance of the viol consort repertoire.

Having been transformed into a viola, this instrument was restored as a viol by Jan Stejskal, who also provided the photographic documentation of his work.
