Allegri’s Miserere has echoed down the ages as a high point of Renaissance sacred choral music. The Sixteen, one of the most popular choirs of our day, bring a new version of this iconic work and build round it a sequence of other music and composers from the Papal court that have remained too long in its shadow. It includes other settings by Allegri himself, the gloriously rich setting of the Stabat Mater by Felice Anerio and the sumptuous sound world of the most celebrated Italian renaissance composer, Giovanni Palestrina.
