Following The Sixteen’s hugely successful album, ‘Song of the Nativity’, which featured Christmas music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, this new seasonal offering explores a stunning selection of festive works from the Renaissance. The Sixteen captures the joy and sincerity of this most wonderful of seasons, from the joyous simplicity of plainsong chants Resonemus laudibus and Veni, veni Emmanuel to the shining purity of Lassus’s polyphonic Videntes stellam Magi and Byrd’s jubilant This day Christ was born. This album provides a perfect alternative to traditional carols for those looking for something a little different at Christmas.

‘The Sixteen gives a masterclass in the art of unaccompanied singing, … It puts the music front and centre, in this beautifully realised Christmas sequence.’ – BBC Music Magazine on COR16146 (Song of the Nativity)
