The Sixteen’s Choral Pilgrimage 2019

The Sixteen return to Llandaff this Autumn for their annual Choral Pilgrimage. Join us on Thursday 10th October at 7.30pm for what is always a popular concert in the Cathedral.
Tickets are priced at £15-£30 and are available here.

The 2019 Choral Pilgrimage brings together music past and present, highlighting The Sixteen’s choral journey over the last 40 years. The close relationship with Sir James MacMillan continues with a new commission O virgo prudentissima, contrasted with music by Fayrfax performed on the 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.
