Inspired by the Sistine Chapel
Including Palestrina, Campkin, Morales, Josquin des Pr√©s and Allegri‚Äôs Miserere
Over four decades of performance, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have done more than any other group to ensure that sacred vocal music of the Renaissance has not fallen out of the repertoire of concerts across the world. This fine programme draws on the richness of music at the Sistine Chapel, which was not solely a treasure trove of visual art. Allegri‚Äôs ‚ÄėMiserere‚Äô was jealously guarded by Vatican powers, but there was much more than that heard within those famous walls. Palestrina set many versions of the Mass, some of which provide the framework of this concert, where the Italian Renaissance will come to the Gothic nave of Winchester Cathedral.
