Great European Choral Works – The Sixteen, Harry Christophers
Since the group was founded in 1979, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen have recorded more than 100 discs of choral music spanning 600 years. On this new collection, Coro presents a selection of their most celebrated recordings.
The disc features music by more than a dozen composers representing ten countries, from Palestrina’s Assumpta est Maria and Monteverdi’s Beatus vir to excerpts from Poulenc’s Sept Répons des ténèbres and Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir. Alongside the first disc in this set, Great British Choral Works, it is the perfect introduction to The Sixteen’s wonderful music making.
