The Sixteen’s performances on Tuesday 15 December are still able to go ahead. Unfortunately, as London will be under Tier 3 restrictions from Wednesday 16 December, we are sorry to announce that The Sixteen’s performances on Wednesday 16 December have been cancelled. Bookers are being contacted and will be refunded for the full value of their tickets and any drinks vouchers purchased.

You can be able to watch the concert online on Wednesday 23 December as part of The Sixteen’s Choral Odyssey series. Full details below.


The Sixteen’s programme for Christmas 2020 weaves six centuries of choral masterpieces into a stunning celebration of music written for the voice.

Works from the golden age of polyphony by Byrd, Lassus, Palestina and Victoria, prefaced by haunting medieval plainsong, are presented side-by-side with music by 20th century and living composers that, like Ord’s Adam lay ybounden, have already become an unmistakable and indispensable part of sound of Advent.

We are so pleased to present this traditional, much-loved seasonal performance with Harry Christophers’ Sixteen in our safe, secure and comfortable auditorium.

‘Thought-provoking and never predictable.’
The Guardian
