Notes & Reviews:

A fascinating recording of three new commissions from James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik, and Will Todd, accompanied by a number of other works by each of the composers.

The last year has seen The Sixteen form a fascinating partnership with the UK based Genesis Foundation. In 2008 the Foundation commissioned three new works from James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Will Todd all based on the prayer of Capuchin priest, Padre Pio: Stay With Me, Lord. The result was the creation of three very different, but equally powerful works which were premiered in a performance by The Sixteen at Westminster Cathedral in June 2008 to great reception. In May 2009 CORO will be releasing all three works on disc accompanied by a number of other works by each of the three composers.

"Three imaginative responses to Padre Pio's Prayer, sung with rapt dedication. Needless to say, The Sixteen under Harry Christophers respond with breathtaking assurance and rapt dedication. An enthusiastic recommendation." -Gramophone Magazine

"The Sixteen sing with such assurance that each commission sounds as though it has been in their repertoire for years." -The Observer

"The three Padre Pio pieces reflect different responses to the prayer's message, with sincerity as a constant." -The Telegraph ***

"... MacMillan's own devout Catholicism gives a special charge and authority to his religious settings, and his treatment of the prayer by Padre Pio... is no exception. The Sixteen again excel both in terms of technique and expressivity, and while the music on this disc is slightly uneven in quality, the contribution of this magnificent body of singers is uniformly excellent." -BBC Music Magazine *****
