Featuring Allegri's eternal Miserere, our 2021 Choral Pilgrimage focusses on Rome, a city that has inspired countless pilgrimages, and where each of the four composers in this programme wrote some of their finest work.
There are certain texts which inspire composers more than others but there is one in particular that has provided us with sublime music ever since it appeared centuries ago—the Agnus Dei. This collection from The Sixteen celebrates some of the finest settings from the Renaissance through to the 20th century.
Choral Chihuahua is a new podcast series in which three British choral directors chat about things that matter to them: composers they love, points of choral technique, classic but also niche choral works, other groups and singers they admire.
Designed to be watched as an accompaniment to The Choral Pilgrimage 2021 or enjoyed in its own right, this 45 minute film takes an in-depth look at three of the pieces in this year’s Choral Pilgrimage programme.
