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.

 

"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

"Foreigners were astonished at the quality of English choirs. Theirs were "the voices of angels", a tribute which The Sixteen deserves no less today."
