The Call of Rome - The Sixteen
The Sixteen will be singing in Southwell Minster as part of our postponed 2020 tour, The Call of Rome, on 30th September. The programme features works by some of the titans of 16th and 17th Century sacred music, who all travelled to Rome to find fame and fortune.
There is a 10% discount for groups of 9 or more, and 50% off tickets for anyone who is under 35, a jobseeker, living with a disability or a carer, and I wondered whether you might be happy to pass details on to your members? Given most Cathedrals have only just started programming concerts we’re announcing ourselves much later than we’d like, but I hope this will be of interest, and that we might see some of you there!
Tickets and further details can be found by clicking the link below

Messiah - Sing at Home Chorus
Each year at Christmas, the London Handel Festival produces Messiah at St George’s Church, Hanover Square in London, where Handel himself worshipped. In recent Covid-affected times, we have had to do things differently. In December (date to be confirmed) - and then again on 5 April this year - we had soloists and a professional baroque orchestra playing live in the church with all choruses pre-recorded by partner choirs and a special ‘all comers sing at home’ chorus of amateur singers. This is Messiah Reimagined.
Both versions of the project were live-streamed and are still available on our YouTube channel.
We are delighted to have involved some 1,000 singers across five continents and had digital audiences of 300,000 worldwide.
Encouraged by this response, we are planning another similar event in December and would like to invite members of your choir to join our Sing at Home chorus.
We are now receiving applications to join the Sing at Home choir and would encourage those interested to apply without delay. This can be done by visiting our website and selecting the What's On tab.
