The Eton Choirbook
Selected works from the Eton Choirbook and other contemporary English music.
The Eton Choirbook was created between 1500 and 1505 and originally contained 93 works by 24 composers from the early Tudor period. It exists in highly decorated manuscript, and was compiled for use in Henry VI's Chapel at Eton College.
This programme of a cappella music featured music from this extraordinary collection of works and offered some insight into other English composers of the period.
BEMP's principal musical director JanJoost van Elburg gave a pre concert talk on the Eton Choirbook before the concert on Sunday October 23rd.
