Rome in York Minster

A glorious musical journey from Rome to York, featuring the works of Palestrina and Victoria and bringing to life one of the treasures of York Minster's historic collection. This evening's programme places the mass movements from Palestrina's famous Missa Papae Marcelli alongside Victoria motets and plainsong from the York Missal, manuscripts of which are held in the Minster Library. York Minster Choir lead us into this opulent sound world, ideally suited to the Minster''s spacious acoustic, by performing in the nave.

This programme has been designed to celebrate the opening of new ground-breaking interactive displays in the Undercroft, 'Revealing York Minster: A heroic, human and historic journey', where visitors will be transported on a 2000–year journey from York Minster's Roman foundations to the modern day.
