NOTES:

The Schola Cantorum of St Joseph’s Basilica holds a candle to 16th and 17th century Roman polyphony, as heard in the famous Sistine Chapel.

Beginning with the sombre atmosphere of Holy Week, as the darkness overwhelms the stirring lamentations of Tenebrae, we culminate in the haunting beauty of Allegri’s Miserere.

And then we explore brighter festal works associated with the feast of Candlemas, when the Christ-child is presented as the Light of the world, with rousing works by and lesser-known composers of the papal court.
