A Benedictine Day 

In this Renaissance sequence, The Sixteen provide a reflection on the services of the Divine Office sung by a group of Benedictine monks during the day. Through works by Spanish, Italian, Flemish and English composers, they reveal how the ancient monastic tone texts formed the basis of magnificent polyphonic creations, from the spacious elaborations of John Sheppard to the sensuous settings of Victoria, the ground-breaking writing of Palestrina to the Catholic Byrd’s intricate, contrapuntal style, culminating in Anerio’s eight-part Magnificat.
