Product Description

Review

Christopher's choir, The Sixteen, is arguably themost visible professional choral ensemble in Britain --The Times

CD Description

Sixteenth-century England was a place of much religious change. It was a dangerous and confusing time as Henry VIII, who had split with Rome, was succeeded by his young son Edward VI, then by the ardent Catholic, Mary Tudor, and finally by the Protestant, Elizabeth I. Composers of the day, such as William Byrd, John Sheppard and Thomas Tallis, were required to adapt to rapidly changing musical requirements and it is testament to their incredible skill and musical mastery that they produced such magnificent works in such troubled times. At the heart of this programme are Sheppards monumental Media vita in morte sumus and Byrds deeply personal setting of Infelix ego. Set amongst these exceptional masterpieces are Byrds joyful motets Laudibus in sanctis and Haec dies, and one of the gems of this recording - Tallis Miserere nostri.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Heaven 9 Jun 2013
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Harry Christophers and the Sixteen are the epitome of choral polyphonic artistry. Their output is prodigious but the consistency of excellence is astonishing. This compilation of works by Tallis, Byrd and Sheppard is a continuance of the production of their interpretation of the master composers. The focus is on Tudor times; times of great change and difficulties for the creators of such marvellous music delivered by the best interpreters of the classic style, the Sixteen, under Christophers's direction. If you have the chance to see them live, please do so, they are a delight. This recording is, as their others, outstanding. It is difficult to fault or pick the outstanding from their repertoire. 'Laudibus in sanctis' and the extended 'Media vita in morte sumus' reveal why. Spread the word and the sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply perfect! 8 Jun 2011
By ljay
Format:Audio CD
Incredible! I saw the BBC episode that concentrated on Byrd and Tallis and thought it amazing but the CD is outstanding!! The purity of the singing is quite simply exquisite, nothing to say really. Harry Christophers reminds me of Paul McCreesh, so totally dedicated to excellence and so passionate about his art. Could and have, listened to it all day. Wish I could sing like that !!

This is really perfect meditation listening. Classic FM have rightly chosen the Sixteen. A perfect sound from a very talented group. Th range of music they cover is broad and sometimes novel or unusual. Keep it coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sixteen 28 Mar 2010
By Wellaar
Format:Audio CD
For the information of the previous reviewer, the fact that it is not recognized on his / her PC is not the fault of the CD or Mr Christophers and the Sixteen! Be objective! Truly great music wonderfully performed. More of the Golden Age of English Music please Harry Christophers.
