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.
