The Sixteen is a musical treasure.
After 35 years of worldwide performance and recording, the vocal ensemble is renowned for its tonal richness, expressive intensity and compelling collective artistry, drawn from the passion of Founder and Conductor Harry Christophers CBE.
One of The Sixteen’s most popular programs, An Immortal Legacy has a distinctly British feel, spanning over 500 years of choral music. 16th century composers Tallis and Byrd wrote at times of religious turmoil and national upheaval, producing magnificent works of beauty and musical mastery.
Their legacy can be traced to some of Britain’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century composers, including Britten, Tippett and James MacMillan, whose works complete this enlightening program.
