Sistine Chapel Choir

The Sistine Chapel Choir, the Cappella Musicale Pontificia ‘Sistina’, directed by  Mgr Massimo Palombella, will performs its first ever concert in Britain at Westminster Cathedral next week.

The concert will include music historically used in the Papal Celebrations, and will take the audience on a journey through the Liturgical Year. Gregorian Chant will feature along with music by Palestrina and Perosi. The Sistine Chapel Choir is the Pope’s personal choir and sings whenever the Pontiff requests its presence. It consists of 20 men and around 35 boys (aged 8 to 13).

It will take place on Sunday, 6 May at 7.30pm. Admission is free. There will be a retiring collection.
