The Sixteen — Et exultavit spiritum meum


  • 20.00 Concertzaal
  • 21.45 Expected end time
  • 19.15 Introduction by Koen Uvin


A song of praise, a top choir and five centuries of music

Gripping images, alternating moods and perhaps the best-beloved central figure of all time: the Magnificat has it all. The Sixteen select the finest examples of five centuries of choral music, from the magnificent polyphony of Lassus and Victoria to some thoroughly English Magnificats from the 20th century. That the choral tradition across the Channel is still very much alive is proven by a brand new work by young Englishman Thomas Hyde.
