    Singers of Exsultemus: The Astonishing Eton Choirbook

    Six sublime singers from the early music choir Exsultemus perform treasures from the Eton Choirbook. This devotional music from c. 1500 is virtually unknown today--it is what Henry VIII would have heard as a boy: English Gothic style in full flower. Shannon Canavin's pure soprano floats high above her five male companions for rapturous effects. Earthier, secular music from other manuscripts enriches the program. A convivial reception follows.
    The singers are Shannon Canavin, soprano; Martin Near, countertenor; Jason McStoots,tenor; Owen McIntosh, tenor; Sumner Thompson, baritone; & Paul Guttry, bass.
    Based in the Boston area, Exsultemus is "unquestionably in the top-tier of Renaissance vocal ensembles in the Northeast" (Boston Musical Intelligencer).
