The Sixteen: The Choral Pilgrimage
📅 Friday 20 September 2019
Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral
As part of Liverpool Early Music Festival.
In celebration of The Sixteen's 40th anniversary, their 2019 Choral Pilgrimage brings together choral masterpieces past and present, highlighting the group’s musical journey over the last four decades. Their close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission O virgo prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on their very first recording, alongside music by Wylkynson and Sheppard. These fine examples of English polyphony are juxtaposed with stunning music by Tavener and Eric Whitacre.
