About

What could be more welcome than a little repose and respite from the demands of daily life?

The works on this album tell stories of life and love, of tranquillity and stillness, some naïve and simple, others infused with complex imagery.

This beautiful album features a stunning selection of music spanning over 500 years. From exuberant early works such as Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin and I am a jolly foster to Will Todd’s sublime Whisper Him my name, Maxwell Davies’s Lullabye for Lucy, Stanford’s glorious The Blue Bird, and a new commission from Roderick Williams, this is truly music to escape to.

‘It takes a lot to stay ahead of the choral pack for as long as Harry Christophers and The Sixteen.’ – The Arts Desk

‘Some choirs of high renown aim for a kind of robotic perfection in synch with the digital age. Christophers’ troupe contains human beings colouring lines with individual hues, yet still acting and breathing as one.’ – The Times
