Sixteen, The


"One of the most outstanding choirs in a country renowned for choral music…Harry Christophers moulds his vocal ensemble with consummate musicianship, and the performances have seamless intensity." -- The Sunday Telegraph

After twenty-eight years of worldwide performance and recording, The Sixteen is recognised as one of the world’s greatest vocal ensembles. Its special reputation for performing early English polyphony, masterpieces of the Renaissance and a diversity of 20th century music is drawn from the passions of conductor and founder, Harry Christophers. Originally the choir consisted of sixteen singers performing sixteenth century music, but as the repertoire expanded so have the numbers, and for the past ten years the choir has consisted of eighteen singers.

Over one hundred recordings reflect The Sixteen’s quality in a range of work spanning the music of five hundred years, winning many awards including Grand Prix du Disque, numerous Schallplattenkritik, the coveted Gramophone Award for Early Music, the prestigious Classical Brit Award 2005 for Renaissance and most recently being nominated for a Grammy Award for IKON. These latter two discs were recorded as part of a series for Universal Classics and Jazz.
