Since they were founded in 1979 Harry Christophers and The Sixteen have recorded over 100 discs of choral music spanning 600 years. On this new collection, CORO presents a selection of their most celebrated recordings of music by composers from across Europe.
This disc features music from over 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 Ténèbrae and Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir. This disc provides a superb collection of works from some of Europe’s most celebrated composers and, alongside the first disc in this set, Great British Choral Works, is the perfect introduction to The Sixteen’s wonderful music.
