ORA Singers presents a programme inspired by Rome's rich catalogue of Renaissance composers, from Palestrina to Ingegneri, Marenzio to Porta. The programme is book-ended by two choral classics: Allegri's iconic 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 includes two pieces commissioned especially 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.

Discounts available on combination tickets for 27, 29 and 30 June concerts.
