The Genius of Illumination

The Sixteen, The Hillard Ensemble. Coro Music 2011.
I had to spend time with my son at Great Ormond Street recentally, on the way back to the tube station we visited the British Library where I picked this up.
Originally released for the exhibition of royal manuscripts in 2011 this features a mix of mainly 15th century music, including work from the Eton Songbook which featured in the exhibition.
As you might expect from the performers this is spine tingling in quality even if none of the peices were new to me.
