The Sixteen

One of the UK's finest professional choirs, touring worldwide.

Founded 1979

  • Mission statement

    After more than thirty years of world-wide performance and recording, The Sixteen is recognised as one of the world’s greatest ensembles. Comprising both choir and period instrument orchestra, the ensemble, under the leadership of Harry Christophers, has a special reputation for performing early English polyphony and masterpieces of the Renaissance, as well as bringing fresh insights into Baroque and early Classical music and a diversity of twentieth and twenty-first century music.

    The Sixteen does not receive regular public funding and is totally reliant on support from trusts, foundations, individuals and corporate sponsors. Please help us to achieve our ambitious plans in 2012 by making a donation to The Sixteen.
