Eton Choirbook

Jump to: navigation, search

The Eton Choirbook, one of only three such books (along with the Lambeth Choirbook and the Caius Choirbook to survive from pre-Reformation England, is a large manuscript collection of Marian antiphons, Magnificat settings and other motets assembled for, and still held at, Eton College. Edward Hygons is thought to possibly be responsible for the existence of this book, as well as the Lambeth Choirbook and the Caius Choirbook.

This choirbook appears to have been compiled in two separate stages, the majority of the works being inscribed around 1500 with some later additions possibly from 1510-15. It originally contained 93 works, 29 of which have been completely lost and another 21 of which are incomplete, although a few of these are also found in other sources. (A list of the original contents appears in two substantially identical indexes.)

Publication date and place: 1520 in Eton, England – Manuscript.
