The Choral Pilgrimage 2021: Croydon

20 September 2021 7:30pm Croydon Minster Tickets: £10 - 20(Booking Fees Apply)

A city which has inspired countless pilgrimages, Rome, and in particular the Sistine Chapel, was where each of the four composers in our 2021 Choral Pilgrimage: The Call of Rome programme created some of their finest work. Victoria’s monumental Responsories for Holy Saturday frame a powerful programme of music for Holy Week and Marian devotion by Josquin, Felice Anerio and Allegri, culminating in Allegri’s eternal Miserere.
