Sixteen

Director: Harry Christophers

Sixteen

Mixed Choral Chorus from UK, England.

The Sixteen is one of the jewels in the musical crown of Britain. Internationally recognised as one of the finest choirs of our time, it is admired for performances combining clarity and precision with beauty and dramatic intensity. It concentrates on the heritage of early English polyphony, masterpieces of the Renaissance and Baroque, and a diversity of twentieth century choral work. The choir is complimented for larger scale works by its orchestra, The Symphony of harmony and Invention, and through it Harry Christophers brings fresh insights to the music of Purcell, Monteverdi, JS Bach and Handel. Many prize-winning recordings reflect the quality and inspiration of the group's work. Recent years have seen the group's debuts at the Vienna Musikverein, the Brisbane, Covent Garden, Halle, Istanbul and Lucerne festivals, and at the Lisbon Opera in a new production of Monmteverdi's "Il Ritorno d'Ulisse". In 2000 The Sixteen made a Choral Pilgrimage to the finest English cathedrals, returning pre-reformation music written for these buildings to its home. This met with a huge public response. In coming months the group makes major tours of Japan and the USA, returns to the Covent Garden Festival, New York's Lincoln Center, Manchester's Bridgewater Hall and London's Barbican Centre, and makes debuts at the Scarlatti Festival, Italy, Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Paris, and the Belfast, Brighton, Chicester, Norwich and Three Choirs festivals.

The Sixteen's conductor and founder, Harry Christophers, has directed the group throughout Europe, America and the Far East, gaining a distinghished reputation through a variety of projects and over seventy recordings. He is a regular guest conductor of orchestras such as the English Chamber Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie, and in the USA has conducted the St Louis Symphony. Increasinly busy in opera, he has conducted Monteverdi's Il Rittorno d'Ulise, Gluck's Orfeo and Mozart's Magic Flute for Lisbon Opera House, and in September 2000 made his debut for English National Opera conducting Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea.

The Sixteen's seventy CD recordings have won many accolades, including two Grands Prix du Disque, two Deutsche Schallplatten prizes and the 1992 Gramophone Early Music Award for the first of the five volume Music from the Eton Choirbook. Their Stravinsky and Poulenc disc with the BBC Philharmonic and Frank Martin disc won Diapason d'Or awards in 1995 and 1996. Recordings span music over six centuries, from simple plainchant to the most virtuosic 20th century choral writing: medieval English music, Robert Carver, Sheppard, Taverner, Tallis, Byrd, the Portuguese 17th century composers Melgas and Rebelo, Purcell, JS Bach, Handel's oratorios, Poulenc, Britten, Stravinsky, Messiaen, Lesur, Bernstein and Tavener.

Sixteen : Fen and Meadow : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers : Benjamin Britten : SCT 709

Sixteen : Fen and Meadow

Review: Most critics consider Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) the most eminent English composer of the twentieth century. His works include masterpieces of choral, operatic, orchestral and chamber music. The works on this album show some of the breadth and range of Britten's choral writing, embracing the masque from his opera Gloriana, his own take on the English part song tradition in Five Flower Songs, and his last work for unaccompanied voices, Sacred and Profane. The latter sets medieval texts described herein as "a mixture of the devotional and the rumbustiously secular". The Sixteen is one of the jewels in the musical crown of Britain, and enjoys a worldwide reputation for clarity and beauty with precision and dramatic intensity. Founded in 1977 by its director, Harry Christophers, its albums 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.

Sixteen : A Ceremony of Carols : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers :  : 16034

Sixteen : A Ceremony of Carols

Review: Britten's A Ceremony of Carols is a masterpiece composed on board ship as Britten returned to England from the U.S.A. in 1948, a touching evocation of boyhood lost but never forgotten. A Boy was Born is a work that first made Britten famous, based on a theme and variations of astonishing ingenuity. The Missa Brevis, written for the boys of Westminster Cathedral, is a gem that in some ways looks forward to the War Requiem which came two years later. 69 minutes.

Songlist: A Ceremony of Carols, Missa Brevis in D, A Boy Was Born

Sixteen : Allegri Miserere : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers : Giovanni Palestrina : 16014

Sixteen : Allegri Miserere

Review: The haunting tones of Allegri's Miserere are uniquely and instantly recognizable even to those who know little sacred music. It was only ever sung in the Sistine Chapel, where Allegri himself was a chorister. Palestrina had sung there before Allegri was born and his best-known work is Miss Papae Marcelli. Like his Stabat Mater it combines exquisite poise with a translucent setting of words. Chromaticism and blossoming cadences are employed to heart-rending effect in Lotti's eight-part Crucifixus in a unique blend of 16th and 18th century musical styles.

Songlist: Crucifixus, Stabat mater Dolorosa, Miserere Mei, Missa Papae Marcelli, - Kyrie, - Gloria, Credo, - Sanctus and Benedictus, - Agnus Dei I, - Agnus Dei II

Sixteen : An Eternal Harmony

Review: The vast power of the Royal Courts of England and Scotland may be long gone but the sumptuous sounds of their worship are not lost. This disc brings together music of some of the most outstanding but now little-known composers of the 15th and 16th centuries, and introduces a major new work by one of this century's most remarkable composers, James Macmillan. Robert Carver's mesmeric setting of the devotional text "O bone Jesu" has long been admired and has now proved an inspiration to James MacMillan who has chosen with this special commission for The Sixteen, to clothe the same text in his own musical language of reflective beauty. "This 25th Anniversary CD is a delight, and like all great recordings it gets better the more you listen to it." - BBC Radio 3, CD Review

Songlist: Dum Sacrum Mysterium, Credo From Mass, O Bone Jesu, When David Heard, In Monte Oliveti, O Vos Omnes, How Are The Mighty Fallin', Salve Regina , Ave Maria Mater Dei , O Bone Jesu

Sixteen : Barber - Agnus Dei

Review: This collection of American choral music spanning the 20th century features familiar and less well-known composers, from the lyrical traditionalism of Barber by way of Bernstein and Copland to the counterpoint, rhythmic verve and neo-classicism of Irving Fine. The disc finishes with the dreamily haunting Acrostic Song from Final Alice by David del Tredici.

Songlist: Agnus Dei , O Know To End As To Begin, Have You Seen The White Lily Grow?, O Do Not Wanton With Those Eyes, Against Jealousy, Lament, The Hour-Glass, Clapping Music, Spring Song, Court Song, Soldier's Song, Prelude, Benedictus, Sanctus', Requiem, Gloria, Help Us, O Lord, Thou, O Jehovah, Abideth Forever, Have Mercy On Us, O My Lord, Sing Ye Praises To Our King, Mary Hynes, Anthony O Daly, The Coolin, Acrostic Song From "Final Alice"

Sixteen : Christus Natus Est - An Early English Christmas : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers :  : 16027

Sixteen : Christus Natus Est - An Early English Christmas

Review: Amongst the exhaustive catalogue of recordings devoted to Christmas music, this particular example - focusing on works written in England during the Middle Ages and Renaissance - can be warmly recommended indeed. The performances, as ever by this superb choir, are polished and beautifully executed, and the program is varied both in terms of the selection of pieces (carols, motets, ballads, chant...) and also in the interpretations (usually choir or consort but sometimes 1 singer, occasionally accompanied by instruments - harp, lute, rebec/fiddle, drums). Furthermore, a number of the tracks constitute probably the best available performances of certain works.

Songlist: Verbum caro, Salutation Carol, Nowell, sing we, both all and some, Gaudete, Hail Mary full of Grace, Gloria in excelsis, There is no rose, Nowell, nowell: Out of your sleep, Remember O thou man, Quid petis, O Fili?, Sweet was the song, Lullaby my sweet little baby, Are rex angelorum, Drive the cold winter away, Nowell, nowell: The boares head, The old year now has passed away, Angelus ad Virginem, Nowell, nowell: Dieu vous garde, Make we joy, Verbum caro

Sixteen : Flowering of Genius : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers :  : 16001

Sixteen : Flowering of Genius

Review: Music from a turning point in history .... the short-lived marriage between Mary Tudor and Philip II of Spain, although barren and doomed, resulted in a glorious flowering of Anglo-Spanish music which saw the greatest musicians from the two nations meeting and working together. The music for a flamboyant Christmas Day ceremony in St. Paul's Cathedral in 1554 was a celebratory focal point of an extraordinary resurgence of the Catholic faith in England, fuelled by hopes, soon to be dashed, that Mary was pregnant.

Songlist: Francisco Guerrero (1528-1599): Ave Virgo sanctissima, Thomas Tallis (1505-1585): Suscipe quaeso, Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611):, O Vos Omnes, - Vere languores, - O Domine Iesu Christe, Thomas Tallis: Agnus Dei from mass "Puer natus", Tomas Luis de Victoria:, - Super flumina Babylonis, - Vadam et circuibo, - Laudate Dominum omes gentes, John Sheppard (1500-1558): Verbum caro, Philippe de Monte (1521-1603): Super flumina Babylonis, William Byrd (1543-1623): Quomodo catabimus

Sixteen : Frank Martin

Review: Frank Martin was arguably Switzerland's greatest composer. His shimmering Mass for Double Choir, completed in 1926 as 'an affair between God and himself', is one of the finest settings of the 20th century, yet it had to wait forty-one years to be shared with others in its first performance. This collection of his choral music also includes his cantata for Switzerland's National Day and the Ode to Music, along with some charming part-songs. Eclectic and technically superb these pieces display a style that is serenely individual.

Songlist: Cantate pour le 1er Aot, Janeton, Petite eglise, Si Charlotte avait voulu, Come unto these yellow sands, Full fathom five, Before you can say, You are three men of sin, Where the bee sucks, Sonnet, Le coucou, Ode, Le petit village, Ode a la Musique, Kyrie eleison, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei

Sixteen : Ikon of Light -  Sir John Tavener : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers : John Tavener : 16015

Sixteen : Ikon of Light - Sir John Tavener

Review: Despite the mystic beauty of his music, John Tavener's place in Western music is a controversial one. His desire to create musical ikons for a time in which he believes 'man has lost his belief not only in God, but also in himself' is provocative. Yet part of the attraction of his music must surely arise from its symbolic nature, a reflection of his deeply-held Orthodox faith. This collection cvers a wide range of Tavener's celebrated choral output and includes his immediately popular setting of William Blake's The Lamb, and the luminously spiritual, Ikon of Light.

Songlist: A Hymn to the Mother of God, Hymn for the Dormition of the Mother of God, The Lamb, The Tyger, Ikon of Light, Fos I, Doxa, piu intensita, Trisagion, Mystic Prayer To The Holy Spirit, Trisagion, Fos, Today the Virgin , Eonia

Sixteen : Thomas Tallis : Spem in alium : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers : Thomas Tallis : 16016

Sixteen : Thomas Tallis : Spem in alium

Review: Newly recorded in the round and in surround sound, Thomas Tallis' 40-part motet, Spem in alium, one of the great landmarks of polyphony, forms the centre-piece of this dazzling CD. Under the theme, Music for Monarchs and Magnates' The Sixteen draws together music by Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons and Thomas Tomkins, some of it never before recorded, some indeed not performed since the time of its writing. It explores the use of music for ceremonial, even propaganda purposes by the state, contrasted with the composers' private use of biblical texts to give public vent to their own sometimes dangerous views in an England torn by political and religious strife. Alongside the usual 40 voice setting of Spem in Alium is an English version of the same work - Sing and Glorify - which was adapted to an English text for King James I to honour his son Henry, the newly-annointed Prince of Wales. With cornetts, sackbuts, dulcians and organs in place of some voices, this is a glorious complement to the usual version.

Songlist: Spem in Alium , O all true faithful hearts, Deus venerunt gentes, Know you not, Great King of Gods (Lord of Lords), O God, the heathen are come, Te Deum, Be Strong and of A Good Courage, Spem in Alium (also set as "Sing and glorify")

Sixteen : Tomas Luis de Victoria - Requiem 1605 : 00  1 CD : Harry Christophers : Tomas Luis de Victoria : 16033

Sixteen : Tomas Luis de Victoria - Requiem 1605

Review: This new recording features the celebrated Requiem of 1605, Victoria's final composition, a work of beguiling beauty and sumptuous simplicity. It can be seen as the summation of both his art and the Spanish Renaissance tradition. The beautiful plainsong on which it is structured can be heard arching through the texture, forming a delicate and sinuous line throughout. Subtly accompanied by a chamber organ and bajon, it is recorded here with the same forces as may well have performed it originally in the Monasterio de las Descalzas Reales. The Requiem is preceded by Marian Antiphons interspersed with three motets setting texts from the Song of Songs.

Songlist: Salve Regina, Ave Regina caelorum, Nigra sum, Quam pulchri sunt, Trahe me post te , Ave Regina caelorum a, Taedet animam meam, Missa pro defunctis a 6 Introit, Kyrie, Gradual, Offertory, Sanctus & Benedictus, Agnus Dei , Communion, Funeral motet: Versa est in luctum, Responsory: Libera me

Sixteen : Victoria - The Call Of The Beloved

Review: The great Spanish composer and priest, Victoria, devoted his life to writing supremely uplifting and intense music throughout the church calendar. The Call of the Beloved includes some of the earliest triple-choir music ever to be published and is a reminder of Victoria's joyous and passionate music, complementing his more austere Requiem and music for Holy Week. "If one can ever achieve complete emotional expression through the power of music, then here it is." - Harry Christophers. "This is a beautifully prepared and rewarding recording that deepens our appreciation of one of the greatest masters of the renaissance." - Gramophone

Songlist: Motet: Laetatus sum a 12, Missa: Laetatus sum a 12, Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus , Benedictus , Agnus Dei , Hymn: Veni creator spiritus a 4 , Motet: Vadam et circuibo civitatem a 6 , Motet: Vidi speciosam a 6, Hymn: Ad caenam Agni providi a 4, Magnificat Sexti toni a 12
