“A tiny soundbite of heaven”
The Times (UK)

One of the world’s greatest period ensembles comes to New Zealand for the first time to present two very special concerts.

Driven by the passions of eminent conductor and founder Harry Christophers, The Sixteen (UK) has been a regular at major concert halls and festivals worldwide for over 30 years. Comprising choir and period-instrument orchestra, The Sixteen has a reputation for performing early English polyphony and the masterpieces of the Renaissance, as well as bringing fresh insights into Baroque and early Classical music.

For the second concert, An Immortal Legacy, The Sixteen choir performs some of the best-loved classics of Tudor and Jacobean church music and madrigals together with popular pieces by Britten and Tippett.

An Immortal Legacy
Thomas Tallis:
Tunes for Archbishop
Parker's Psalter
Salvator mundi
O nata lux
O sacrum convivium
Loquebantur variis linguis

Orlando Gibbons:
The Silver Swan

James MacMillan:
Sedebit Dominus Rex
Mitte manum tuam

Michael Tippett:
Five Spirituals from A Child of Our Time

Thomas Morley:
April is in my mistress' face

William Byrd:
Laudibus in sanctis
This sweet and merry month of May

Benjamin Britten:
Gloriana Dances
