The Sixteen return to Winchester Cathedral as part of their 2019 Choral Pilgrimage. The Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting The Sixteen's Choral journey over the last 40 years. Their close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission OvirgoÂ prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on their very first recording, alongside music by Wylkynson and Sheppard. These fine examples of English polyphony are juxtaposed with stunning music by Tavener and Eric Whitacre in the Sixteen's 40th anniversary year.
