About the album
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 us a tantalising glimpse into a wealth of choral music which was lost. Here, in one collection, are all The Sixteen's acclaimed recordings of this glorious music.
