One of Britain’s most beloved choirs, The Sixteen return once again to Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral for their Choral Pilgrimage.
Their 2019 Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting The Sixteen’s choral journey over the last 40 years. Their close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission O virgo prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on their very first recording, alongside music by Wylkynson and Sheppard. These fine examples of English polyphony are juxtaposed with stunning music by Tavener and Eric Whitacre in their 40th anniversary year.
