The second concert in ORA Singers' new Design Series, where a different designer is asked to create a unique design around the musical programme and the fantastic space of the Jerwood Hall.ORA Singers presents a programme inspired by Rome's rich catalogue of Renaissance composers who worked at the Sistine Chapel, from Palestrina to Ingegenri, Marenzio to Porta. The programme is book-ended by two choral classics, the iconic Allegri Miserere, and the modern masterpiece that is MacMillan's setting of the same text. As with all ORA programmes, Renaissance works sit side-by-side with stunning modern reflections and text settings.
