About

There are certain texts which inspire composers more than others, but one in particular has provided us with sublime music ever since it appeared centuries ago – the Agnus Dei.

This collection from The Sixteen celebrates some of the finest settings from the Renaissance through to the 20th century. From Tallis to Scarlatti and Rubbra to Britten, the variety of settings and musical language featured here is quite astounding and you may even discover an Agnus Dei that you haven’t heard before!

Of course no collection of this type would be complete without Samuel Barber’s Agnus Dei – probably one of the most famous settings ever written, certainly in recent times, and which rarely leaves a dry eye.

‘It takes a lot to stay at the head of the choral pack for as long as Harry Christophers and The Sixteen.’
