The Sixteen
Harry Christophers

2009 is a year of anniversaries - the three hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Henry Purcell’s birth (1659), James MacMillan’s fiftieth birthday (16 July 2009) and The Sixteen’s thirtieth anniversary.

To celebrate, the ensemble has recorded live a brand new disc of music dedicated to these most innovative of British composers.

Purcell’s extraordinary use of harmony sounds as modern today as it must have sounded in the seventeenth century. Putting his heartfelt Funeral Sentences alongside James MacMillan’s powerfully emotive A Child’s Prayer, written in memory of the Dunblane Tragedy, and his hauntingly beautiful O bone Jesu (a piece originally commissioned by The Sixteen) will give the listener the chance to experience the true power of this music.

The Sixteen’s national Choral Pilgrimage will take this wonderful programme to twenty venues throughout England, Scotland and Wales over the next nine months performing to thousands of people.
