One of the most perfect choral groups working today and described by The Times as a ‘tiny soundbite of heaven’, The Sixteen returns to the Welsh capital for a fascinating Christmas programme that reflects on themes of innocence and danger. Why not indulge yourself in an afternoon of sublime music by contemporary and Renaissance composers, as well as much-loved favourites – a perfect seasonal treat.
