The Gate of Glory: Choir of Christ Church Cathedral Release New CD of Music from the Eton Choirbook

The latest recording from the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford directed by Stephen Darlington is released today (17 November) and can be purchased here. The Gate of Glory is the fifth volume in the critically acclaimed exploration of music from the Eton Choirbook and includes the world première recording of Walter Lambe’s Gaude flore virginali. The Eton Choirbook contains an extraordinarily vast and diverse collection of English sacred music from the turn of the 16th century and this CD features music by some of its more famous composers, Robert Fayrfax, Walter Lambe and John Browne, alongside less familiar names, Hugo Kellyk and Robert Hacomplaynt. The recording was produced by Jeremy Summerly. The first three volumes in the Music from the Eton Choirbook series, More Divine than Human, Choirs of Angels and Courts of Heaven were all on the final shortlists for Gramophone Awards and volume 4, The Sun most radiant, was Editor’s Choice in Gramophone on its release last year.
