About

Whilst coming from very different eras, William Byrd and Arvo Pärt are both considered masters of sacred music despite having faced considerable persecution for their work. This programme presents six of William Byrd’s works from the Cantiones Sacrae including the monumental Tribue, Domine, and the mighty eight-voice motet Ad Dominum cum tribularer. The three works by Arvo Pärt speak in his unmistakable voice, with its unique blend of ancient and modern, and include his mesmerising Nunc dimittis which is crafted in his bell-like ‘tinitinnabuli’ style.

Reviews

The Sixteen perform music of composers born four centuries apart, both persecuted for their religious faith. [...] In each case their choral writing has a simplicity and intensity, perfectly suited to the blended sound of the Sixteen. Fiona Maddocks
