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.
