The Sixteen, one of the world’s most renowned choral ensembles, returns to Cadogan Hall to perform a programme of beautiful and inspiring choral music. Taking its inspiration from the story at the heart of the season, the nativity, traditional and modern arrangements of festive favourites, including A Boy was Born in Bethlehem, and There is no rose, mix with the medieval sounds of Hildegard of Bingen and the familiar Renaissance voices of Sheppard, Lobo and Byrd.

A cherished and much-loved fixture on the cultural calendar, The Sixteen at Christmas has firmly established itself as an indispensable seasonal tradition, ushering in the Christmas season with warmth and joy.
