Due to popular demand, CORO has packaged The Sixteen's two most popular Christmas titles into one double CD set. The ensemble's Traditional Christmas Carol Collections Volumes I and II feature some of our best-known and best-loved Christmas carols in arrangements with traditional harmonies and original words. Favourites include In the bleak midwinter, Silent night and See amid the winter's snow. There is also an abundance of festive music that deserves to be better known and The Sixteen includes some rediscovered treasures in this collection such as Masters in this Hall, Past three a clock and Gloucestershire Wassail.

"The Sixteen sounds as crisp and refreshing as a frosty morning...A wide and interesting choice of festive favourites, performed with precise, unsentimental warmth and a sense of occasion." (ClassicFM)

"If you really want to listen to carols at home or in the gym, you won't go wrong with these pristine performances." (Financial Times)
