ORA Singers continues Design series with The Music of Rome

ORA Singers will return to LSO St. Luke’s, London on Saturday 1 June 2019 for the second concert in its new Design Series, The Music of Rome.

The series features a collaboration with a different designer for each of the nine concerts at LSO St. Luke’s Jerwood Hall. For the second concert, ORA Singers present a programme inspired by Rome’s catalogue of Renaissance composers who worked at the Sistine Chapel.

Book-ended by two choral classics, Allegri’s Miserere and MacMillan’s setting of the same text, the programme showcases Renaissance works alongside modern reflections and text settings, including the world premiere of two reflections on Palestrina: Edmund Finnis’ Improperium expectavit cor meum, and Janet Wheeler’s Terra Tremuit.
