The third part of the Eton Choirbook introduces four composers not previously featured – Holyngbourne, Nesbett, Stratford and Turges – and includes Davy’s St Matthew Passion and Wylkynson’s setting of the Apostles’ Creed. Magnus Williamson’s revision of Volume III retains the examplary editing by Frank Harrison. However, the fragmentary antiphons and Magnificat settings, previously presented as incipits only, are now included in complete transcriptions. Though still unperformable, they are nonetheless of considerable musical interest, and faburden melodies and plainsong cantus fermi relevant to these pieces have been provided in an expanded Appendix.
