Sanctum Est Verum Lumen
Multi-Part Music for Choir
Tallis's monumental Spem in alium is one of the greatest glories of Western polyphony, and its preechoes and aftershocks reverberate through all the other pieces on this disc.The massed voices of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, in their 25th anniversary year, dazzle in this programme of choral jewels from the 15th and 16th centuries, interspersed with virtuoso tributes from three leading contemporary composers, including Gabriel Jackson's own 40-part motet.
“…though, this is a disc of stunning music beautifully performed.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2009 ****
“Sanctum est verum lumen… comes across as an astonishing tour de force, the strands of musical texture cascading through this cast choir with glorious luminosity. These young singers take the work to heart and beyond the almost incredible choral discipline and uniformity of tone that Brewer produces from well over 200 individual voices, there is a real sense of enthusiasm which never intrudes into the technical security of the performance but adds a lovely lustre to Delphian's luxuriant recording. It is... unusual to hear Spem in alium performed with... between five and six voiced per part. ...if one is prepared to put thoughts of authenticity aside, the results are spine-tinglingly spectacular.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2009

The Victoria Collection
2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Tomás Luis de Victoria. This remarkable Spaniard epitomized the emotion and fervour of Renaissance Europe and could be considered the most outstanding composer of his time.
This new boxed set contains four of The Sixteen’s celebrated Victoria recordings for the price of three including his masterpiece, the Requiem of 1605 recorded in surround sound and released in SACD format.
A beautifully packaged set, which compliments perfectly the release of The Sixteen's newest recording by the composer - Hail, Mother of the Redeemer, also features some of the composer's Lamentations for Holy week. What could make a more appropriate Easter gift?
