The Sixteen (UK)
“A tiny soundbite of heaven” - The Times (UK)
One of the world’s greatest period ensembles comes to New Zealand for the first time to present two very special concerts.
Driven by the passions of eminent conductor and founder Harry Christophers, The Sixteen has been a regular at major concert halls and festivals worldwide for over 30 years. Comprising choir and period-instrument orchestra, The Sixteen has a reputation for performing early English polyphony and the masterpieces of the Renaissance, as well as bringing fresh insights into Baroque and early Classical music.
For the Festival, The Sixteen presents two incredible concerts. In the first, the choir is joined by the orchestra in celebrating the genius of Handel, concluding with perhaps his best-loved choral work, the uplifting Dixit Dominus.
