Event description
Sumptuous music from 16th century Florence directed by Mark Spyropoulos of the Sistine Chapel Choir.

About this Event

Mark Spyropoulos of the Sistine Chapel Choir directs a specialist 10-voice all-male ensemble presenting sacred music from early 16th century Florence, recently unearthed in the Medici Archives. The mass setting and the motets are presented in liturgical context in a Solemn High Mass with incense, hymns, and homily. You can see Mark interviewed (mins 10-14) and singing (from 53 mins) in the BBC documentary Inside the Vatican linked below.

The service is Episcopalian. Those of all faiths and of none are most welcome. All baptized Christians are welcome to receive the Sacrament.

The choral service is followed by drinks and a light lunch in Revelation Gallery, the art gallery of St John's in the Village (presently showing the work of Dalton Portella [www.portella.eventbrite.com])

The choral service is, of course, free and open to all. Registration is recommended for catering purposes.
