We welcome The Sixteen back to the Festival for their 2011 Choral Pilgrimage concert celebrating another anniversary – 400 years since the death of one of the greatest composers of the Renaissance,Tomás Luis de Victoria. Scholar, mystic, priest, singer, organist and composer, Victoria began and ended his life in Spain, and, despite spending most of his working life in Rome, always preserved his Iberian roots, giving his music a unique beauty and power in its contemplation of the divine. This programme features a sumptuous selection of the music he wrote in honour of the Virgin Mary.
'the choral sounds were wonderfully clear and unfailingly precise … Christopher's group can be just as impressively extrovert as they had been austerely restrained' The Guardian
Promoted in association with The Sixteen.
