The Pillars of Eternity: Eton Choirbook Volume III

COR16022

£7.99

This is the third volume from the medieval Eton Choirbook collection which 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.

The Sixteen
Harry Christophers

'It is difficult to believe that any 15th or 16th century choir could have sung this music with the refined blend, the rich tone, or the shapeliness shown by The Sixteen, under the direction of Harry Christophers.' The Times
