The Sixteen contrasts traditional with contemporary in this choral feast of festive music. Bob Chilcott's sumptuous Advent Antiphons based on plainsong melodies anticipate the coming of Christmas and feature alongside Mykola Leontovich's much-loved Carol of the Bells, Richard Rodney Bennett's stunning Susanni and Eric Whitacre's shimmering Lux aurumque. Interspersed with the beautiful simplicity of traditional carols, this is a Christmas collection to savour.

"The Sixteen have been around so long (40 years and counting) that it is easy to take them for granted. This newly recorded Christmas disc, however, acts as a sharp reminder of the choir's abiding excellence...Mike Hatch's pitch-perfect engineering frames a disc which shies away from the commercial clamour of Christmas, to a more contemplative, spiritual experience" Five Stars BBC Music Christmas Choice 2021
