About

Can it really be 40 years since a fledgling group of singers gave their first concert in May 1979? To celebrate this milestone, we have chosen 40 tracks which have defined this acclaimed ensemble over the last four decades and which display its incredible versatility, as well as the sheer range of music and styles it has covered. Featuring music from the last 600 years and with personal recommendations from The Sixteen’s members both past and present, as well as the longest-serving members of the administrative team, this beautifully packaged album promises to be the must-have collection for all fans of choral music.

‘Forty years on, The Sixteen’s supple, fastidiously nuanced soundworld continues to serve “ancient” and “modern” with aplomb.’ – BBC Music Magazine

‘sit back and let these glorious sounds fill your ears and lift your spirits.’ – Gramophone
