Since they were founded in 1979 Harry Christophers and The Sixteen have recorded over 100 discs of choral music spanning 600 years. On this collection, CORO presents a selection of their most celebrated recordings of music by British composers. From Tallis's monumental Spem in Alium and Sheppard's Media Vita in morte sumus to the delights of Purcell's The Fairy Queen and MacMillan's powerfully emotive A Child's Prayer written in memory of the Dunblane tragedy, this disc provides a superb collection of works from some of Britain's most eminent composers. Sixteen tracks, eleven composers, and a feast of British choral music that will delight fans of The Sixteen as well as those new to the ensemble.
