The Sixteen return to Temple Church with their acclaimed Queen of Heaven programme. Focusing on three composers’ unique devotion to the church, a new version of Allegri’s renowned Miserere is paired with James MacMillan’s own setting of the text and pieces by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, whose works have often been seen as the culmination of Renaissance polyphony.
