The Rose and the Ostrich Feather: Eton Choirbook Volume I

The Rose and the Ostrich Feather: Eton Choirbook Volume I

COR16026

£7.99

This disc is the first of five volumes of the award-winning Eton Choirbook Series on CORO. The series offers a tantalising glimpse of fifteenth century sacred English Choral Music, saved from Henry VIII’s ransacking of the monasteries.

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.
