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. Early booked advised.
‘Thought-provoking and never predictable.’
Duration: 60 mins (no interval)
