One of the greatest surviving glories of pre- Reformation England, The Eton Choirbook is a giant 500-year-old manuscript from The Royal Foundation at Eton College Chapel – a stone’s throw from Windsor Castle.

This sequence of music from the Choirbook features a thrilling setting of the Magnificat, heartrending motets, the earliest polyphonic Passion by a named composer, and an extraordinary 13-part canon by the man in charge of the Choristers at Eton, Robert Wylkynson.

Continuing a journey begun with the part books of Byrd-Round-Table and Machaut’s manuscript in True-Love-Story, The Song Company reads the music of the Eton Choirbook from a beautiful DIAMM facsimile, all gathered around a central music stand.
