The Sixteen: An Immortal Legacy

World renowned choir The Sixteen bring one of their most popular concert programmes, celebrating the lasting legacy of sixteenth century composers and their influence on 20th and 21st century composers, to the Barber.

This concert features some of the best-loved classics of Tudor and Jacobean church music together with madrigals by Tallis, Byrd and Gibbons, alongside pieces by Britten, Tippett and MacMillan including the ‘Five Spirituals’ from A Child of Our Time and the ‘Choral Dances’ from Gloriana.  Birmingham University Singers will feature, alongside The Sixteen, in a performance of Chilcott’s Tallis Canon.
