The Call Of Rome

OX Magazine

21 March 2020, 8pm | Christ Church Cathedral
Accompanying Choral Workshop 2-5pm | Magdalen College Auditorium

The Sixteen celebrate 20 years of their Choral Pilgrimage tour with music from 16th and 17th Century Rome, a city which has inspired countless pilgrimages, and where each of the four composers in this year’s programme created some of their finest work. Motets by Josquin and F. Anerio are framed by Victoria’s powerful Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday with all culminating in Allegri’s eternal Miserere.

The Concert will be preceded by a workshop for singers of all abilities, led by The Sixteen's Associate Conductor Eamonn Dougan, focusing on vocal production, breathing and ensemble skills, taught through the medium of two works by Josquin and Victoria.

For the first time, discounts of 50% are available for anyone under the age of 35. More information on the concert, workshop and tickets can be found here.
