Five texts accounted for 58, nearly two-thirds, of the pieces in the Eton Choirbook:

  • Magnificat (24 settings)
  • Salve regina (15)
  • Gaude flore virginali (11)
  • Stabat mater dolorosa (5)
  • Gaude virgo mater cristi (3)

In due course, we aim to provide full transcriptions and translations of all texts used in the choirbook.  In the meantime you can find links to these commonly set texts.
