The definitive album of household favorite carols, beautifully and expertly sung. This collection of well-loved traditional Christmas carols is perfect for creating a warm seasonal atmosphere, and to sing along with. The Sixteen is one of the jewels in the musical crown of Britain, and enjoys a worldwide reputation. Founded in 1977 by director Harry Christophers, its eighty CDs have received nearly every major prize of the recording industry, including the prestigious Gramophone Award for Early Music. The Sixteen's special reputation for early English polyphony, masterpieces of the Renaissance, and a diversity of twentieth century music is founded on a naturalness of performance, a revealing clarity and beauty of sound, precision, and a dramatic intensity of delivery.
