The Sixteen

Magnificats: Et exultavit spiritum meum

Striking images, alternating moods and perhaps the best-loved main character of all time: the Magnificat has everything. The Sixteen have taken the most beautiful examples from five centuries of choir music, from the powerful polyphony of Lassus and Victoria to the 20th century, quintessentially English Mags. Magnificat by the young English composer Thomas Hyde is proof that the choral tradition on the other side of the Channel is very much alive and kicking.
