The Tears of Saint Peter

THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT. Check out 15 March concert.

Betrayal, regret, forgiveness? Peter’s denial of Christ is one of the most compelling human stories of Christianity, and Lasso’s monumental valediction, Lagrime di San Pietro (The Tears of St. Peter) is the supreme musical re-telling of this pivotal moment in biblical history. Allegri’s justly famous Miserere is one of the most beautiful of all choral works and this iconic cry for mercy and forgiveness features the soaring splendour of soprano Greta Bradman. Conducted by Carl Crossin.

Orlando di Lasso: Lagrime di San Pietro
Carl Crossin: …and Peter went out and wept bitterly (new work)
Gregorio Allegri: Miserere mei, Deus
