This new CD from Harry Christophers and The Sixteen will be out soon in the U.S.A. (April 1, no fooling):
Whilst coming from very different eras, William Byrd and Arvo Pärt are both considered masters of sacred music despite having faced considerable persecution for their work. This programme presents six of William Byrd’s works from the Cantiones Sacrae including the monumental "Tribue, Domine", and the mighty eight-voice motet "Ad Dominum cum tribularer". The three works by Arvo Pärt speak in his unmistakable voice, with its unique blend of ancient and modern, and include his mesmerising "Nunc dimittis" which is crafted in his bell-like ‘tinitinnabuli’ style.
In 2016 The Sixteen’s Choral Pilgrimage will take The Deer’s Cry programme to 33 towns and cities across the UK including London, Oxford, Cambridge, York, Manchester, Cardiff and Edinburgh.
The title "The Deer's Cry" refers St. Patrick's prayer also called the Lorica or Breastplate of St Patrick. More about it here from the Irish Chaplaincy in Ireland.
