The Sixteen have become a household name. They are the voices of Classic FM, and stars of the BBC Four series ‘Sacred Music’, presented by Simon Russell Beale. Every year since the millennium, they have undertaken a choral pilgrimage, bringing a programme of a cappella vocal music to around 30 cathedrals the length and breadth of the country. They are prolific recording artists, and perform at festivals and venues all over the world. Harry Christophers is a unique figure in music. With The Sixteen, Christophers has succeeded in nurturing a choir of exceptional calibre, establishing a business model that includes a record label and extensive tours to capacity audiences, mining a rich variety of repertoire, and combining enormous popular appeal with the stamp of approval from experts. This book will be accessible to everyone, regardless of musical experience or knowledge.
