Notes & Reviews:

The works on this album show some of the breadth and range of Benjamin Britten's choral writing, embracing the masque from his opera 'Gloriana,' his own take on the English part song tradition in 'Five Flower Songs,' and his last work for unaccompanied voices, 'Sacred and Profane.' The latter sets medieval texts described herein as a "mixture of the devotional and the rumbustiously secular." The Sixteen is one of the jewels in the musical crown of Britain, and enjoys a worldwide reputation for clarity and beauty with precision and dramatic intensity.
