The Sixteen: Choral Pilgrimage 2019 at Tewkesbury Abbey

Saturday 7 September 2019

The 2019 Choral Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting The Sixteen’s choral journey over the last 40 years. The close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission O virgo prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on our 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 in this 40th anniversary year.

Plainsong Salve Regina
Tavener Hymn to the Mother of God
Sheppard ‘Gloria’ from Cantate Mass
