The Call of Rome with The Sixteen and Harry Christophers conductor

Celebrating 20 years of The Choral Pilgrimage, The Sixteen's 2021 tour is inspired by Rome, where each of the four composers in this year’s programme created some of their finest work. Victoria’s monumental Tenebrae Responsories frame a powerful programme of music by Josquin, Felice Anerio and Allegri, culminating in Allegri’s eternal Miserere.
