ETON CHOIRBOOK COLLECTION (5 CDs)

$ 42.49 $ 49.99

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 us a tantalising glimpse into a wealth of choral music which was lost. Here, in one collection, are all The Sixteen's acclaimed recordings of this glorious music.
