The Sixteen’s Choral Pilgrimage 2009

On Friday 13 March, The Sixteen will perform a programme of choral masterpieces both ancient & modern in St John’s College Chapel. The programme focuses on the three hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Purcell's birth (1659) and James MacMillan's fiftieth birthday (16 July 2009). Purcell has long been regarded as the most innovative of British composers; his extraordinary use of harmony sounds as modern today as it must have sounded in the seventeenth century. Putting his heartfelt Funeral Sentences alongside James MacMillan's powerfully emotive Child's Prayer, written in memory of the Dunblane tragedy, will give the listener the chance to experience the true power of music. Tickets from £10 available from Cambridge Arts Theatre 01223 503 333
