Harry Christophers and The Sixteen’s annual Choral Pilgrimage – amazingly, 2020 marks the pilgrimage’s 20th anniversary – is one of the abiding joys of the UK’s choral scene, the concerts eagerly awaited by audiences. The accompanying CD is equally something of an annual highlight and this year’s offering, a rich programme of renaissance polyphony, does not disappoint. With Allegri’s celebrated Miserere at its heart, all of the admirable qualities we have come to expect from The Sixteen are on display in spades – just sample the Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday by Victoria. Christophers has assembled a satisfying programme of music for the Catholic Church, which is then beautifully executed by him and his hand-picked group of singers.
