Introduction: The Beauchamp Chapel in Warwick is a remarkable survival of 15th-century architecture, sculpture and—above all—stained glass.

While the windows have suffered from both iconoclasm and restoration, which has obscured and confused some of the musical material, there is much to be gleaned from the surviving chant and polyphony.
