    The Sixteen’s 2019 Choral Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting the group’s musical journey over the 40 years since it was founded. Their continuing close relationship with Sir James MacMillan is represented by a new commission, O virgo prudentissima, here contrasted with music by Fayrfax (which appeared on The Sixteen’s very first recording) and complemented by music by Wylkynson and Sheppard. These superb examples of English polyphony are juxtaposed with stunning music by John Tavener and Eric Whitacre.

    spine-shiveringly radiant from the first to the last’ The Times
