The Sixteen

Sat 11 Apr 2020 7:30pm

From £5.00 to £35.00

Snape Maltings Concert Hall

Part of Easter Weekend

Saturday 11 April 2020 - 7.30pm

On the wall of the Sistine Chapel, scratched amongst the ancient graffiti in the singers’ gallery is the autograph of composer Josquin des Prez, a singer in the chapel choir over 500 years ago. But it is the music of Gregorio Allegri that provides this iconic building’s most enduring musical signature – his famous setting of the Miserere is still sung there every year in Holy Week.

The Sixteen’s annual choral pilgrimage incorporates a new version of Allegri’s famous work that charts the evolution of the piece over the years.

Booking opens on Tuesday 3 December at 10am. Priority booking for Annual Donors opens on Tuesday 29 October, for Friends on Tuesday 12 November and for ABL and eABL on Tuesday 26 November. Find out more about joining us and priority booking.
