Doors open at 7:15 Deep within the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel has been in continuous use as the Papal Chapel and for Papal Conclaves since 1483. Its music is on an elevated aesthetic plane and was closely guarded over the centuries. Palestrina (1525-1594) was among the finest of Renaissance composers, with many of his compositions performed there. In 1770 while on tour in Rome, the young Mozart heard Allegris 1638 Miserere at the Sistine Chapel and was so impressed that he immediately went home and wrote it down, note for note, from memory.

Voices of Ascension Music from the Sistine Chapel
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 8pm
Church of the Ascension
Fifth Avenue at Tenth Street, NYC

Palestrina Missa Papae Marcelli, Allegri Misereri, works by Palestrina, Victoria and others

Renowned for Michelangelo's frescos and Papal conclaves, the Sistine Chapel has been home to some of the finest sacred music ever written. Composed in honor of Pope Marcellus, Palestrinas Missa Papae Marcelli was intentionally written to be easy listening. Strongly encouraged to make the words of the Mass intelligible, Palestrina proved that it was possible to compose a musical masterpiece and still have clarity of text. Our concert will also include works by Victoria and the most famous piece ever composed for the Sistine Chapel Choir, Allegris Miserere.
