A Choral Odyssey with The Sixteen

18 November – 23 December 2020

Join The Sixteen on a voyage of choral discovery, exploring some of the UK’s most fascinating buildings and the unique stories that bind them to our choral heritage.

The Sixteen are excited to present a brand-new, five-part series of programmes, A Choral Odyssey. Presented by actor Sir Simon Russell Beale, this special series, produced by The Sixteen, explores choral music from across the ages in iconic, pertinent surroundings – from Byrd in Elizabeth I’s childhood home of Hatfield House, to Purcell in the reconstructed 17th-century theatre of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

These programmes, featuring performers from The Sixteen, reunite Harry Christophers and Simon Russell Beale, a partnership which proved so successful in the popular BBC Sacred Music series. The series culminates in an ‘as live’ relay of the group’s special Christmas concert from Cadogan Hall, which will weave together six centuries of festive choral masterpieces.

Episodes will be released every Wednesday from 18 November – 23 December 2020, with all episodes then available to watch on demand until 31 January 2021.


£50 – Series ticket (all five programmes plus the ‘as live’ performance from Cadogan Hall)
£10 – Single episode ticket
Only one ticket is required per household.
