The group performs selections of early English Polyphony, Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical music, plus a wide range of twentieth century and contemporary music.

The Sixteen also makes recordings on its own label, CORO, and, in partnership with the Genesis Foundation, offers the UK's first fully-funded choral training programme for young singers, Genesis Sixteen.
