Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the third volume to be released on CORO in the distinguished & collectible Eton Choirbook series. Miraculously, the Eton Choirbook survived Henry VIII's ransacking of the monasteries. Thanks to its survival, the sacred music of the English fifteenth-century is still with us, conjuring up the atmosphere and spirit of the glorious cathedrals for which it was written. It also gives a tantalising glimpse of a wealth of choral music which was lost. 'Vibrant performances...The Sixteeen continues to explore the astonishing riches of the Eton Choirbook with undiminished enthusiasm and imagination.
