Product Description

This superb collection, released in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Britten s birth, features all three of the The Sixteen s celebrated Britten recordings. Arguably the most celebrated British composer of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten possessed a formidable talent and distinctive style. His remarkable career spanned over 40 years, and this collection of choral works features a fascinating selection of music from throughout his life.

Format: Audio CD
Newly issued for the Britten centenary, this box brings together three existing recordings of The Sixteen with director Harry Christophers:

Blest Cecilia: Britten Choral Works I
A Hymn to the Virgin
A Hymn of Saint Columba
Hymn to St. Peter, Op. 56a
Antiphon, Op. 56b
Te Deum in C
Jubilate Deo in C major (1961)
Hymn to St Cecilia, Op. 27
Festival Te Deum in E, Op. 32
Rejoice in the Lamb, Op. 30

Britten Choral Works II: A Ceremony of Carols
A Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28
A Boy was Born, Op. 3
A Shepherd's Carol
Missa Brevis in D major, Op. 63
The Sycamore Tree - Sweet was the Song

Fen And Meadow: Britten Choral Works III
Choral Dances from Gloriana, Op. 53
Advance Democracy
The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard
A Wedding Anthem, Op. 46
Five Flower Songs, Op. 47
Sacred and Profane, Op. 91

The Sixteen are of course well known both from recordings and their many concert tours. They have built a reputation as one of the world's leading vocal ensembles, and though they specialise in early music, they here demonstrate the many beauties of Britten's choral writing.

A wonderful way to celebrate the Centenary!
