Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Surprises and rarities abound here, with little-heard Anerio and Marenzio among others. It's great to see The Sixteen taking their large fanbase on a daring journey of discovery. They come up trumps with works, and performances, which reflect the majesty and artistic ambition of the august venue from which this music was drawn." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice)

BBC Music Magazine
Director Harry Christophers draws controlled performances which highlight the music's extremes of spiritual serenity and visceral energy. As one might expect from this crack choir, there is some seraphic singing and standards of intonation and ensemble are impeccable.
