Baroque Christmas concert

Baroque Christmas concert

This special Christmas concert - at the magnificent Baroque church of St Agnes in Agony (Sant'Agnese in Agone) in the Piazza Navona - offers a unique experience where music and the visual arts are combined.

The prestigious Schola Romana Ensemble, which specialises in Baroque music from Rome, will perform specially chosen works by Baroque masters of the Sistine Chapel, such as Palestrina, Victoria, Arcadelt, Lasso, Morales and Anerio.

During the 17th century, wonderful liturgies were set to Baroque music at the Sistine Chapel, and these performances were then repeated in Rome’s most important churches, attracting many visitors from all over the world. With this fabulous concert, you are invited to relive the glory of an extraordinary artistic and cultural era.
