ORA Singers presents a programme inspired by Rome's rich catalogue of Renaissance composers. The programme is book-ended by 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 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.

Programme to include works by:
Allegri, Anerio, Ingegneri, Marenzio, Palestrina, Julia Adolphe, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Edmund Finnis, Gabriel Jackson, James MacMillan and Roxanna Panufnik

SJE Arts in collaboration with Oxford Festival of the Arts
