EDITORS’ NOTES

When Francis Drake circumnavigated the world from 1577–80, he took a consort of four viola players to boost morale and culture. Orlando Gough’s The World Encompassed is a thrilling exploration of sound and adventure that honors Drake’s fateful journey with its inspiring string polyphony and somber, faithful chorales.
