Discover afresh the inspirational music of Handel, Lalande, Vivaldi and Allegri. Our Grand Tour starts in London with the majesty of Zadok the Priest – sung at every British coronation since 1727 – departs for the magnificence of Paris and the Most Serene Republic of Venice, and arrives at the Eternal City for one of the glories of Rome, Allegri’s Miserere, famous for its soaring top ‘c’s.
