The Sixteen explores a stunning collection  of festive works from the Renaissance capturing the joy and sincerity of this most wonderful of seasons.  From the delightful simplicity of plainsong chants Resonemus laudibus and Veni, veni Emmanuel to the shining purity of Lassus' polyphonic Videntes stellam Magi and Byrd's jubilant This day Christ was born, this album provides a perfect alternative to traditional carols for those looking for something a little different at Christmas.
