BBC Radio 3 broadcast live from Chichester Cathedral a performance of Handel's Dixit Dominus by The Sixteen

On Thursday 25th February 2016, at 7.30pm, BBC Radio 3 will broadcast a performance of Handel's Dixit Dominus by The Sixteen.

During this sold-out concert The Sixteen choir and orchestra will devote an entire evening to the glorious music of Handel.  Full of virtuosity, vibrant colour and dynamic energy, this programme showcases some of Handel's most majestic works.  His Dixit Dominus perfectly captures the Italian style of the period.  Written during the composer's time in Italy in the early 18th century it is amongst his earliest autographed works and one of his finest.

After 35 years of worldwide performance and recording, The Sixteen is recognised as one of the world's greatest ensembles.  Comprising both choir and period-instrument orchestra, The Sixteen's total commitment to the music it performs is its greatest distinction.
