The Sixteen

Sixteen_Group_2_HiRes_RGB - Small


Harry Christophers conductor
The Sixteen

Programme to include:

Walton Make we joy now in this fest
Warlock Corpus Christi carol
Holst This have I done for my true love
Britten A Ceremony of Carols

plus medieval carols

Out of the air and water of his native Suffolk, Benjamin Britten crafted a musical Christmas celebration with a difference: a garland of song, charged with the power of tradition, but bright with the promise of renewal. His Ceremony of Carols is like a wreath of freshly-plucked greenery on the top of this carol-concert with a difference from Harry Christophers and his virtuoso chamber choir The Sixteen: the brightest link in a chain of seasonal music that stretches from Medieval chant to the vivid, poetic British classics by William Walton, Peter Warlock, Gustav Holst and many more.  “Wolcum alle and make good cheer!”
