The Voices of Angels: Eton Choirbook Volume V. Album by The Sixteen

COR16002

£7.99

Album Description

The fifth and final volume of the Eton Choirbook collection which miraculously 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.

Reviews

'It wasn't until The Sixteen championed it that this sublime music found its way back into regular performances and the consciousness of the common listener.'  Michael White, The New York Times
