Album Description

In 2011, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen continued their work with Scotland’s most prominent living composer, James MacMillan, and released the premiere recording of his exquisite Miserere, for the CORO label.

Based on Psalm 51, the Miserere mei has been set to music many times over the centuries but few composers have tackled the complete text. Allegri was one such composer, whose reputation rests on that single work. CORO is delighted to have released the first recording of James MacMillan’s 21st-century take on the text.

The Sixteen is renowned for its work with the Scottish composer, and his O bone Jesu - a piece composed especially for The Sixteen features on this CD.

The disc also contains a selection of The Strathclyde Motets and the Tenebrae Responsories.
