The Sixteen have become a household name. They are the Voices of Classic FM, and stars of the BBC Four series Sacred Music, presented by Simon Russell Beale. Every year since the millennium, they have undertaken a Choral Pilgrimage, bringing a programme of a cappella vocal music to around thirty cathedrals the length and breadth of the country. They are prolific recording artists, and perform at festivals and venues all over the world.
