Notes & Reviews:

This collection of music from the Eton Choirbook, the vast collection of English sacred music from the Early Renaissance, is the fourth in an acclaimed seris. Stephen Darlington and The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford lead the series, receiving countless awards and acclaim. The music on this release was firmly rooted in the daily life of the college, appreciated by all who attending and worshipped there. "The performances here are undoubtedly among the best" - BBC Music Magazine "Stunningly effective singing...insightful and precise direction by Stephen Darlington...a ground-breaking achievement" - Early Music Review

Gramophone Magazine, November 2016
With this instalment of music from the Eton Choirbook, the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral sets out to rival The Sixteen's five-volume anthology...Already it seems to me that they surpass it technically - which is remarkable considering the inevitable changes of personnel that time imposes on a choir with boy trebles - and interpretatively.

Sunday Times, 2nd October 2016
The first [Salve Regina setting] contains glories enough, but the male-voice second possesses remarkable sensual richness and sense of destination. The performances of these, and of William Horwood's Gaude Flore Virginali and a Magnificat by William, Monk of Stratford, are excellent.
