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 British composers.

From Tallis’s monumental Spem in Alium and Sheppard’s Media Vita in morte sumus to the delights of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen and MacMillan’s powerfully emotive A Child’s Prayer written in memory of the Dunblane tragedy, this disc provides a superb collection of works from some of Britain’s most eminent composers.

Stellar soloists including Michael Chance, Michael George and Mark Padmore all feature and there are works from The Sixteen’s Award-winning Handel recordings—Messiah and Coronation Anthems.

Sixteen tracks, eleven composers, and a feast of British choral music that will delight fans of The Sixteen as well as those new to the ensemble.

“A thrilling large scale performance” CD Review

“Never before has Spem in alium, Tallis's great 40-part motet, so closely resembled The Last Judgement as it does in this vast and awesome performance” Gramophone Magazine

“Tallis's most famous work is, of course, the showpiece 40-part motet 'Spem in alium'. David Hill's Winchester choristers excel on this excellent 2-CD set, which also contains a number of Tallis's most popular anthems and motets” David Smith, Presto Classical, October 2014

Jesus autem transiens/Credo in Deum


While the latter half of the sixteenth century saw the first stirrings of the Baroque, this period also witnessed the creation of the finest cathedrals in sound, with their foundations in the distant Gothic era of music ... Composers vied with each other in daring and ingenuity, presenting works with twelve, sixteen, twenty-four and even, in the case of Tallis’s famous Spem in alium, forty different voices! The Huelgas Ensemble celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary with a spectacular selection of these works, recorded live without a ‘safety net’.

“this live recording testifies to their astonishing dynamism, energy and coherence.” Gramophone Magazine

“...as the many polyphonic strands surround you – and here they do surround you, thanks to this hybrid SACD – you’d have to have a cold heart not to be caught up in the performances. The ingenuity of the composers is extraordinary” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 14th February 2007
