Performers

Harry Christophers
director

The Sixteen explore the great British choral tradition with a programme focusing on arguably its two most creative periods: glorious Renaissance polyphony in Tallis’ 1567 Tunes for Archbishop Parker’s Psalter (which includes a tune used by Vaughan Williams in his Tallis Fantasia) and motets by Byrd, Morley and Gibbons, juxtaposed with 20th-century works – the vivid pageantry of Britten’s Choral Dances from his opera Gloriana, Tippett’s arrangements of African-American spirituals, which function as chorales in his oratorio A Child of our Time, and two of James Macmillan’s Strathclyde Motets.
