We are delighted to announce that, at the recent Diapason Awards ceremony in Paris, The Sixteen and Britten Sinfonia’s Premiere recording of James MacMillan’s Stabat mater won the Diapason d’Or de l’Année in the Musique Chorale category.
Harry says: ‘I am absolutely thrilled and delighted that Diapason of France has seen fit to give us the highest award of the year for our recording of Sir James MacMillan’s Stabat mater. This work is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Performing it and then recording it for posterity certainly were highlights of The Sixteen’s existence. We can only thank James for composing it and the Genesis Foundation for making a dream come true.’
