The Sixteen at Christmas

A Child is Born

Tickets from £14 to £49

The Sixteen
Harry Christophers, conductor

The Sixteen takes inspiration from the heart of the Christmas story - the nativity - with a sublime weaving of mediaeval, Renaissance, traditional and modern music. Abbess Hildegard von Bingen’s soaring melodies sit alongside the Renaissance voices of Lobo, Scheidt, Byrd and Sheppard, the programme enriched by the settings and arrangements of contemporary composers.
