This is a momentous occasion for The Sixteen, their first live concert after six months of lockdown. As Harry Christophers writes, ‘Those months have given us lots of time to reflect on what is important to us: live performance and connecting with our audience; now we will treasure it even more keenly. Our programme allows us to reflect on our lives and the lives of people around us. It is framed by two double choir litanies both prayerful yet full of hope, whose final prayer is echoed by the women of Canterbury in TS Eliot’s final chorus from Murder in the Cathedral. Music by Josquin, Sheppard and Arvo Part offers an amazing range of sonic variety, texture and subtle use of silence. This music is deeply felt by all of us in The Sixteen.’

A limited number of general admission tickets have been made available for a socially-distanced performance in Hall One. However, if the official guidance in September does not permit this to go ahead, these tickets will be swapped for online tickets and the difference automatically refunded.

Please note, this ticket is to hear the concert in Hall One. Online streaming tickets are also available here.
