The Eton Choirbook is a giant 500 year-old manuscript from Eton College
Chapel, and one of the greatest surviving glories of pre-Reformation
England. This recording features the earliest polyphonic Passion by a
named composer, two heartrending motets for five and six voices, two
thrilling settings of the Magnificat, and an extraordinary canon in 13 parts,
Jesus autem transiens. The ensemble TONUS PEREGRINUS has been
widely acclaimed, not least for its “richly sung and very well recorded”
programme of Orlando Gibbons, L’Estrange, and Pitts. (The Penguin
Guide on 8.557681). TONUS PEREGRINUS was founded by the composer Antony Pitts
in 1990, and today is an established ensemble in Britain and abroad
with a significant discography. At the core of TONUS PEREGRINUS
are a dozen singers who combine their diverse expertise to interpret a
repertoire ranging from the end of the Dark Ages to scores where the ink
is still wet.
