“Pellucid tones, subtlety of timbre, lush legato phrases and vivid word-painting are just some of the defining characteristics of this group under the baton of the charismatic Harry Christophers.”—Bachtrack

Harry Christophers, conductor

Whether performing a simple medieval hymn or expressing the complex musical and emotional language of a contemporary choral composition, the revered British choir The Sixteen does so with tonal warmth, rhythmic precision, and immaculate intonation. The ensemble’s long tradition as a purveyor of early music and the intensity with which they perform sets them apart as one of the greatest vocal ensembles of our time. The group’s UGA Presents debut features works by William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and Arvo Pärt.
