The Sixteen
Harry ChristophersConductor

The Sixteen’s Christmas 2019 programme features Britten’s hugely popular A ceremony of carols. This masterful and unique work continues to be a staple of the choral canon and is an example of Britten’s genius. The rest of the programme combines traditional Medieval carol tunes upon which so much Christmas music has been based, contrasted with more modern delights including Warlock’s Corpus Christi and Walton’s festive Make we joy now in this fest.
