A Golden Age of Portuguese Music. Album by The Sixteen

A Golden Age of Portuguese Music. Album by The Sixteen



Album Description

It often takes one man to encourage excellence in the arts, and in the flourishing Portugal of the 1600s, at the forefront of world exploration, Dom João IV was very much that man. In his court, his favoured composers developed a unique style within the European heritage of sacred music, distinctly and devotionally Portuguese.


The Sixteen
Harry Christophers


'Resplendent... The Sixteen bring a wonderfully intense sense to this music.'  BBC Radio 3, Record Review

'All the music is of a high quality, and it is excellently performed... The Singers are quite superb ... one of the best and most interesting discs by The Sixteen in recent years, and the sound is excellent.'  Gramophone
