The Sixteen / Harry Christophers
The Sixteen returns to its roots, revisiting the golden age of Renaissance polyphony in England. In this new program, the award-winning ensemble performs a stunning selection of works by Richard Davy, John Sheppard, and William Mundy. ‘The Voice of the Turtle Dove’ presents music drawn from two of the richest periods of English sacred music: the last decade of the 15th century when royal choral foundations such as Eton College excelled in intricate devotional music, and a half century later, when the short reign of Mary Tudor brought England back to Catholicism.
