One of the glories of English sacred music is the repertoire contained in the Eton Choirbook. This music is rarely performed – its highly ornate style tends to frighten choirs off – but this should not disguise the fact that its most important composer, John Browne, was the greatest genius of his time. We sing in this programme his uniquely moving Stabat Mater.
Taverner’s 6-voice Magnificat is also in this ornate style – indeed it might be said to be even more ornate – as is Sheppard’s only known votive antiphon, Gaude virgo christipera.
We also sing two shorter pieces by Cornysh from the Eton Choirbook, alongside Tallis’s beautifully effective Te Deum. All in all, a feast.
