Cheltenham Festivals- The Music of Rome

  • Cheltenham College Chapel (map)

ORA Singers presents a programme inspired by Rome's rich catalogue of Renaissance composers, from Palestrina to Ingegneri, Anerio to Porta. The programme is book-ended by two choral classics, the iconic Allegri Miserere, and the modern masterpiece that is MacMillan's setting of the same text. Renaissance works sit side by side with stunning modern reflections and text settings, including the world premiere of Freya Waley-Cohen's reflection on Anerio's Christus Factus Est.
