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, including the world premiere of two reflections on Palestrina; Edmund Finnis' Improperium expectavit cor meum, and Janet Wheeler's Terra Tremuit.

6.30–7pm Pre-concert discussion with Suzi Digby
Drop-in to a free informal discussion led by ORA Singers' Artistic Director & Founder, Suzi Digby, with featured composers from The Music of Rome. The session will include a discussion with Edmund Finnis, who will receive the world premiere performance of his ORA Singers commission, and a look at the other contemporary music featured in the concert programme.
