The Song Company Presents: Treble Helix Unlocked (Canberra)

Concert or Performance

1 Mar 2019

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 Chioirbook 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 Chiorbook 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 Bryd-Round-Table and Machaut’s manuscript in True-Love-Story, we read the music of the Eton Chiorbook from a beautiful Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music facsimile, all gathered around a central music stand.
