Harry Christophers

About

Harry Christophers has been at the forefront of choral music for the last 45 years and this album, in celebration of his 70th birthday, demonstrates the breadth of his musical passions and the wealth of repertoire he has recorded over the years.

Featuring 39 tracks hand-picked by the conductor, the works on this collection document Harry Christophers’ life in music – from his early years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, through his time at Magdalen College, Oxford, and subsequent founding of The Sixteen, to more recent years as Artistic Director of America’s renowned Handel and Haydn Society.

This collection charts his discovery as a boy of Purcell and Poulenc to his enduring love for the music of Victoria and Handel and his celebrated partnership with James MacMillan. Each track holds special significance and the stories behind the choices are documented in notes especially written by Harry Christophers for this album.

‘Christophers is probably the best-known choral director in the world. For [45] years, his professional vocal ensemble, The Sixteen, has set the gold standard, especially in the sacred-music repertoire.’ – The Times
