11th November - Celebrate the unique Eton Choirbook

AN EVENING CELEBRATING THE ETON CHOIRBOOK

Monday 11th November

18:30 - 19:45

Eton College Chapel and Verey Gallery

FREE

The Eton Choirbook is a treasure-store of music and a beautiful instrument of worship, created between 1500 and 1504 for use at Eton College Chapel. Through its survival, this manuscript gives us access to a musical tradition and form of worship that was disrupted and almost obliterated by the Reformation.

The Choirbook was sung from every single day at a service known as a ‘Salve ceremony’. This was a short service of praise and prayer to the Virgin Mary performed as dusk was falling – it was a pre-Reformation model for modern choral evensong. On November 11th 2019, the chapel choir of Eton College will re-enact this service, including a performance of a polyphonic hymn to the Virgin, Salve Regina, taken from the Eton Choirbook.

 

The service will be preceded by a brief introduction by Dr Magnus Williamson of Newcastle University, and followed by an opportunity to see the Choirbook on display in the exhibition nearby.
