Exploring The Sixteen on Early Music

Friday, July 31, 2015 - 9:30am to 12:00pm

Tune in to Early Music on Friday July 31st from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM for a program entirely devoted to the choral and period-instrument orchestral ensemble The Sixteen. The Sixteen was founded in 1977 by Harry Christophers CBE and is perhaps most well known for its excellence in performing early English polyphony works. The ensemble has grown into international renown and is arguably one of the most vibrant and exciting early music groups performing and recording today. We will explore a number of their wonderful recent early music recordings during the program -- including recordings that feature compositions by Vincenzo Bertolusi, Richard Davy, Giovanni Francesco Anerio, John Sheppard, Asprilio Pacelli, William Mundy, and a sampling of settings of the Stabat Mater.
