Escapism is the idea behind this latest offering from Harry Christophers and The Sixteen, and while that's certainly an apt concept for 2021 thus far, you don't need to be craving escapism in order to appreciate its contents.

Their interpretation of “escapism” is a satisfyingly broad one, too. Encompassing over 500 years of repertoire and themes, there's everything here from the robust jollity of William Cornysh's male-voice Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin (“hoyda” being a jovial greeting, and a “rutterkin” being a swaggering gallant or bully) to the peaceful legato and suspended harmonies of Will Todd's mixed-voice Whisper Him my name based on a prayer of Saint Joseph, commissioned for Christophers and The Sixteen. Indeed those two sit side by side.

There's also a new commission from baritone and composer Roderick Williams in the form of an unabashedly romantic and rapturous arrangement of An Eriskay Love Lilt, set to rippling piano waves. In fact one of the pleasures of this album is even balance between 21st century composers (there's also Peter Maxwell Davies, Bob Chilcott, James MacMillan and Eric Whitacre) and names of the past such as Cornyth, Stanford and Bax; and always with the flow from one work (and often century) to the next feeling thoroughly organic.

The singing is equally everything you would anticipate from The Sixteen, with all their usual warmth and purity of tone, smooth blending, and committed expression of their clearly articulated texts' meanings. In short, this is yet another recording from The Sixteen which both their fans and choral lovers in general will be reaching for regularly and indefinitely, far into the future. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.
