The Sixteen’s 17th Choral Pilgrimage tour contrasts the music of the ‘Prince of polyphony’ Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina with the great 20th-century melodist Francis Poulenc

Based around the themes of conflict and atonement, Palestrina’s mass centring on the famous L’Homme Armé tune was immensely popular in the 16th century and its warlike nature serves as a timely reminder of the savagery of conflict, something which deeply affected Poulenc. Poulenc’s Un soir de neige, composed in December 1944, reflects both the inner feeling of peace generated by Christmas and the bleak solitude of another winter of occupation in France.

The Lichfield Festival is excited to welcome back The Sixteen after their last sell-out appearance in Lichfield!
