Experience a deeply moving and heavenly choral performance featuring music from the finest composers of the Italian Renaissance.
One of the most acclaimed musicians of the 16th century, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina held prominent positions in the Roman musical establishment.  He wrote a tremendous number of musical works, leading to international fame and vast influence. Centuries after his death, his music endures. The Festival Eucharist features composer Lodovico Viadana. A choirmaster and priest, his joyful Exultate Justi in Domino is in the dramatic Italianate ‘Seconda Pratica’ style developed by composers such as Monteverdi and Cavalli.



“He is the real king of sacred music and the eternal father of Italian music.”

Giuseppe Verdi on Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.
