About

This disc features some of the best-loved anthems in the church repertoire, and notably that with an Etonian connection. Thus it begins and ends with the music of Parry, Eton's favourite musical son, whose success with Blest Pair of Sirens in 1887, saw him regarded as the leading choral composer in England.
 
In 1441, Henry VI founded Eton College and its sister college, King's College in Cambridge, giving each a chapel in magnificent Perpendicular style. The foundation of Eton College provided ten men and sixteen boys to sing the services and with very few breaks, the choir has been singing in the chapel from then until the present day.
