Led by director Peter Phillips, the program explores the elite world of these great composers with music once written for the revered Sistine Chapel Choir, including Allegri’s iconic Miserere.

For over 40 years, British early music vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars have established themselves as the world’s leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music, creating a sound of astonishing beauty and blend.

About The Program

The Sistine Chapel Choir was the premier singing body in Rome throughout the renaissance period, and as such the one which every Catholic musician, from anywhere in Europe, aspired to join. All the composers to be heard here would have been in the orbit of this choir, receiving performances there, or taking part in them.

In this performance we explore the elite world of these great composers, from Josquin to Palestrina, Morales to Victoria, including Allegri’s iconic Miserere, with its high soprano C, once sung by a castrato.
