The Sixteen to Release New Album this Month
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2014

The Sixteen and its founder and conductor Harry Christophers return to their roots, revisiting the golden age of Renaissance polyphony in England with The Voice of the Turtle Dove. The new recording from The Sixteen's CORO label, available this month from Allegro Classical, is a stunning selection of music by three exceptional Tudor composers: Richard Davy, John Sheppard, and William Mundy.

'Each one of these works is a real gem just waiting to be discovered by a wider audience,' says Christophers, 'This music is part of our great heritage and I look forward to you reveling in its monumental beauty and sheer magnificence.'
