This review is from: The Eton Choirbook (MP3 Download)
One of the joys of Early Music is that just when you think that you know what you like, there are still more obscure branches of sublime music to explore and delight in. The Eton Choirbook is a collection of 3 works by 24 composers that (mostly) survived destruction in the Reformation. The composers on this recording are not well known but ought to be. The writing is complex and engaging given the length of each piece (the shortest exceeds 11 minutes); the recording is resonant and envelops the listener in a 3D wall of sound. Perhaps the performance will be too continental for some but for me this is a collection that I will return to again and again.
