Plainsong Veni creator spiritus
Byrd Laudibus in sanctis | This sweet and merry month of May | Come woeful Orpheus | Haec dies | Infelix ego 
Fayrfax Eternae laudis lilium
Morley April is in my mistress’ face | Phyllis, I fain would die now | My bonny lass she smileth  
Gibbons The Silver Swan | Hosanna to the Son of David

Weelkes Hosanna to the Son of David
Tomkins When David heard that Absalon was slain 


The Sixteen’s annual concert with us is always a highlight of our autumn season. Undoubtedly one of the leading choirs in the world, its mastery across all repertoire never fails to impress and for this concert they present a celebration of sacred Tudor choral music. Whilst this period historically is renowned for its political and religious turmoil, the music that has survived bears no sign of this and is instead intricately beautiful and graciously harmonious, qualities The Sixteen will showcase with their superb musicality and ensemble.
