Veni Domine – Christmas at the Sistine Chapel Sistine Chapel Choir


Join the talented young singers of the acclaimed Sistine Chapel choir—one of the oldest choirs in the world!—for an enthralling concert of Advent and Christmas-themed polyphonic chefs-d'œuvre from the Vatican Library’s vault!  Filmed in the legendary architectural and artistic masterpiece of a room that gave the choir its name, highlights from the performance include never-before-recorded works by Renaissance masters like Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Guillaume Dufay, and Gregorio Allegri! A truly out-of-the-ordinary Christmas celebration!
