The works on this album tell stories of life and love, of tranquility and stillness, some naïve and simple, others infused with complex imagery. “Good night, beloved” features a stunning selection of choral music spanning over 500 years. From exuberant early works such as Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin and I am a jolly foster to Will Todd’s sublime Whisper Him my name, Charles Villiers Stanford’s glorious The Blue Bird, and a new commission from Roderick Williams, this is truly music to escape to. Conductor Harry Christophers and The Sixteen are acclaimed worldwide for performances delivered with precision, power, and passion.
