The Sixteen - Hallelujah for Hodie!
England's premiere vocal group, The Sixteen and their founder-conductor, Harry Christophers are well-known the world over as blowers of cob-webs from Baroque masterpieces and re-discoverers of long-forgotten Renaissance jewels, but their talents reach as far as the repertoire of the 20th and 21st century.

Neither does The Sixteen demure when it comes to the key repertoire of the twentieth century either. As their already acclaimed Christmas Disc, 'Hodie - An English Christmas Collection' amply demonstrates. Set amidst some gems of the English choral tradition of last century is a shining performance of Britten's lapidary A Ceremony of Carols. This is the kind of singing that sees CDs being grabbed from shelves in record shops all over. Just listen:

1. Walton: Make we joy now in this fest
2. Leighton: Coventry Carol
3. Fricker: A Babe is born
4. Rubbra: The Virgin's Cradle Song
5. Britten: A Hymn to the Virgin
6. Tavener: The Lamb
7-18. Britten: A Ceremony of Carols
19. Howells: Sing Lullaby
20. Haywood: Lute book lullaby
21. Howells: A Spotless Rose
22. Warlock: Corpus Christie
23. Warlock: Balulalow
24. Warlock: Benedicamus Domino
25. Gardiner: Tomorrow shall be my dancing day

  You may buy this CD from this page on the Sixteen's Website.
