About

The Sixteen contrasts the dramatic intensity of music by some of todayís most admired composers with such traditional and modern carols as Boris Ordís Adam lay ybounden and Henry Walford Daviesís version of O little town of Bethlehem. Much-loved modern classics including John Rutterís There is a flower, Morten Lauridsenís O magnum mysterium and James MacMillanís O radiant dawn also appear on this beautiful album and there are many others which, in the course of time, will also become classics; every one of them by their unashamed simplicity, captures the joy and sincerity of this most wonderful of seasons. This album provides a perfect peaceful and uplifting antidote to the hectic pre-Christmas rush.

Reviews

The Sixteen's consummate technical ability has long been legendary, but it's their ability to conceal it which is truly special. It puts the music front and centre, in this beautifully realised Christmas sequence.  Terry Blain (Christmas Choice)
