    The Sixteen returns to the Minster for a concert of exquisite music by two masters of sacred choral music separated by four centuries. Palestrina’s mass based on the famous popular song L’homme armé was hugely popular in the 16th century, when it would have served as a timely reminder of the coarse atmosphere of war. Poulenc was also affected by conflict, and his Un soir de neige, composed in December 1944, reflects both the inner feeling of peace associated with Christmas and the bleak solitude of another winter of occupation in his native France.
