Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
We've been talking to some of the world's finest musicians and ensembles to find out which piece they'll be voting for in this year's Hall of Fame. In this video we hear from Harry Christophers, conductor and founder of 'The Voices of Classic FM', The Sixteen.
Last year The Sixteen travelled the world, recorded another album and embarked on another of their famous choral pilgramage, this time celebrating the life and work of the renaissance composer Tomás Luis de Victoria. With another pilgramage planned in the coming months, 2012 is set to be another eventful year for the choir.
As a choir that predominantly perform early English choral works, it's no surprise perhaps that the Sixteen's founder and conductor Harry Christophers has gone for one of the most loved English composers in our Hall of Fame.
