Friday 1 March 7.30pm Treble Helix Unlocked The Song Company. Ethereal interlocking harmonies from the turn of the 16th century sung standing around a beautiful facsimile of the Eton Choirbook. One of the greatest surviving glories of pre- Reformation England, The Eton Choirbook is a giant 500-year-old manuscript from the royal foundation at Eton College Chapel – a stone’s throw from Windsor Castle. This sequence of music from the Choirbook features a thrilling setting of the Magnificat, heartrending motets, the earliest polyphonic Passion by a named composer, and an extraordinary 13-part canon by the man in charge of the Choristers at Eton, Robert Wylkynson. Continuing a journey begun with the partbooks of Byrd-Round-Table and Machaut’s manuscript in True-Love-Story, we read the music of the Eton Choirbook from a beautiful DIAMM facsimile, all gathered around a central music stand.
