The Sixteen

An Immortal Legacy

Monday 14 May, 7.30pm

Returns Only

Tickets: £12 to £32

The Sixteen
Harry Christophers conductor

Music by Tallis, Byrd, Morley, Gibbons, Tippett, Britten and James MacMillan

The Sixteen return to the Festival with a distinctly British programme spanning over 500 years of choral music. 16th century composers Tallis and Byrd wrote at times of religious turmoil and national upheaval, producing magnificent works of beauty and musical mastery. Their legacy can be traced to some of Britain’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century composers, including Britten, Tippett and James MacMillan, whose works complete this enlightening programme.
