A musical evening capturing the enchanted journey through the extraordinary history of the Papacy – trekking through tales of greatness and intellect, whilst stumbling upon Papal times the church would prefer long forgotten. Fascinating tales of incredible leadership and faithfulness are balanced with those that are as hilariously absurd as they are shocking!
Featuring groups of choirs and soloists placed around beautiful venues, these incredible tales will be illustrated with music from the greatest Italian church composers. Armonico Consort, with the help of the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, will guide you through the musical heritage inspired by this great institution.
