Liverpool Early Music Festival

Friday 20th September – The Sixteen- Our 2019 Choral Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting The Sixteen’s choral journey over the last 40 years. Our close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission O virgo prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on our 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 our 40th anniversary year. https://thesixteen.com/events/the-choral-pilgrimage-2019-liverpool/select-seats/1603/
