An Immortal Legacy – The Sixteen, Harry Christophers

England in the sixteenth century was a place of much religious change. It was a dangerous and confusing time and it is testament to their incredible skill and musical mastery that composers such as Tallis and Byrd were able to produce such magnificent works in such troubled times. Their music left a lasting legacy, influencing some of our most celebrated twentieth- and twenty-first-century composers, and surviving over half a millennium to be performed as widely today as they have ever been.

This disc features some of the best-loved classics of Tudor and Jacobean church music together with madrigals by Tallis, Byrd, and Gibbons. They are performed alongside pieces by Britten, Tippett, and MacMillan, including the Five Spirituals from A Child of Our Time and the ‘Choral Dances’ from Gloriana. This is some of the ensemble’s most popular concert repertoire, which The Sixteen has performed around the world over the last six years.

"This programme is a cleverly interwoven hour of Elizabethan and Jacobean church music and madrigals with clearlines drawn through to Britten, Tippett and MacMillan. The singing is faultless, of course and effortlessly idiomatic ..."
