The Song Company: Treble Helix Unlocked

Take a step back in time with Australia’s premier classical vocal ensemble, The Song Company, as it reads the music of the Eton Choirbook from a beautiful DIAMM facsimile. The Eton Choirbook stands at the crossroads of the Renaissance. One of the greatest surviving glories of pre-Reformation England, it is a giant 500-year-old manuscript from the royal foundation at Eton College Chapel. 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 Eton’s choristers, Robert Wylkynson.
