Josquin, Brumel and Lassus were truly European composers, leaving their origins to work in the top establishments of Aix-en-Provence, Ferrara, Rome and Munich. Their music has a unique sonority which will astound you all - from the depth of expression and fascinating texts of Josquin (prepare yourselves for the surreal nature of Praeter rerum seriem) to the overtly decorative mass movements of Brumel's Missa Et ecce terraemotus where the 12 parts interweave in extensive imitation and thrilling tracery, culminating in the extraordinary harmonic stillness of Lassus's Timor et tremor and his gorgeously evocative 12-part setting of Aurora lucis rutilat. The Sixteen's 2012 Choral Pilgrimage will take this programme of music to 27 cathedrals, churches and concert halls throughout the UK including London, Edinburgh, York, Cambridge, Wells, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff.

"The approach of Harry Christophers is distinctive and revelatory..." BBC Music Magazine

"This virtuoso group can hardly improve on a superb opening performance...their interweaving of plainchant and polyphony soared to the holiest heights of this ancient building." The Observer
