Allegri 'Miserere mei' rehearsals

We're almost ready for this year's Ash Wednesday Evensong in St John's College Chapel, which features the Allegri 'Miserere mei.' In his reflections on our Ash Wednesday album – out this week – Director Andrew Nethsingha says his aim with this work "is to conjure up a hypnotic, repetitive, healing atmosphere, in which waves of sound wash over the listener without surprises. This is conducive to meditation, to reflection, to worship."
