The Spanish Mystics were major figures in the Catholic Reformation in Spain during the 16th and 17th centuries. Their attempts to express in words their experience of a mystical communion with Christ produced some exquisite poetry and writings which went on to influence and shape the Spanish language.

O Guiding night is the fascinating result of The Sixteen’s second major collaboration with the Genesis Foundation and features six new works by Tarik O’Regan, Roderick Williams and Ruth Byrchmore, all inspired by the poetry of two principals of The Spanish Mystics movement - St. Teresa of Ávila and St. John of the Cross.

 

"...As always, The Sixteen’s performances are impeccable ..."

Robert Levett - International Record Review - September 2011


              Editor’s Choice

"New and exquisite settings of words by the Spanish Mystics... Robert Quinney gives splendid support on both organ and piano, and the recording is well-nigh perfect."

Malcolm Riley - Gramophone magazine - September 2011

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - August 2011


      Editor Choice

"...Thanks to the visceral commitment of Harry Christophers and his choir, and the refulgent beauty of the music, the listener will connect body and soul with these sensuous performances. It’s hard not to be moved by the wholehearted expression and emotionally engaging styles of each composer’s work, especially given the passion of the music making here." *****

Andrew Stewart - Classic FM Music Magazine - August 2011


"...A  fascinating project ..."

Peter Dale - Choir & Organ - July/August 2011
