Eton Choirbook (15c.)

In its original form, this discography was first published in Early Music Review (No. 139, December 2010) in conjunction with editor Clifford Bartlett’s review of the facsimile of the choirbook prepared by Magnus Wiliamson and published that year by Oxford. A number of additions and corrections have been made. This version has been formatted to match the Du Fay and Josquin des Prez discographies on this website. The works are listed alphabetically and identified by the index numbers in the facsimile edition. The recordings are arranged chronologically, citing conductor, ensemble, date of recording if known, and timing if available. Following is the issued format (ac, 78, 45, 33, LP, MC, CD, SACD, DVD), the label, the issue number(s), album titles and track number; SoundCloud is a downloadable website.

Forty-eight out of 64 titles have been recorded including two from Caius 667. A composer index has been added at the end. Thanks are due to Magnus Williamson for his website and his replies to some questions. Michael Gray’s website,, provided details of some entries. It appears that at least five more pieces might be recorded.
