ORA Singers

In partnership with SJE Arts

The Music of Rome

ORA Singers presents a programme inspired by Rome’s rich catalogue of Renaissance composers, from Palestrina to Ingegneri, Marenzio to Porta. The programme is bookended by two choral classics: the iconic Allegri Miserere and the modern masterpiece that is MacMillan’s setting of the same text. Renaissance works sit side by side with stunning modern reflections and text settings. The evening also includes two pieces commissioned specially by ORA: a new setting of the Lord’s Prayer by American composer Julia Adolphe and a reflection on Anerio’s Christus Factus Est by former New College chorister and current Professor of Composition at the Royal Academy of Music, Edmund Finnis.
