The Clarion Choir and Brass Consort from The Clarion Orchestra
Steven Fox, conductor
The beloved Clarion Choir, joined by brass players from The Clarion Orchestra, returns to The Met with one of the great musical masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. Composed for Pope Marcellus II, whose reign lasted only twenty-two days, Palestrinas Missa Papae Marcelli has lived on for centuries—not least as a staple of papal coronations at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. This performance takes place in The Met's Medieval Sculpture Hall, where the voices will resound in glorious polyphony.
Ticket to this event include same-day Museum admission during open hours.
