The Sixteen
Harry Christophers

This superb new compilation features some of the highlights of The Sixteen's twentieth century repertoire, Hymns to St Cecilia, St Columba and Hymn to the Virgin, along with Rejoice in the Lamb, and Choral Dances from Gloriana.

This is Britten, a genius at the centre of his country's artistic life, celebrating his own cultural and historic heritage in the optimistic dawn of the "new Elizabethan" age. A highly appropriate release with which to mark this Jubilee Year.

With a personal foreword from Harry Christophers within the booklet.

"A disc of exceptional quality, reinforcing The Sixteen's reputation as one of the finest choirs of our day." - Gramophone
