The Flower of all Virginity: Eton Choirbook Volume IV. Album by The Sixteen

COR16018

£7.99

Album Description

This is the fourth volume in the distinguished & collectable Eton Choirbook series on CORO.

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.
