Fittingly for the Memorial Day Weekend, in honor of all those fallen in all the wars, Cappella Romana will also perform Sir John Tavener’s “Funeral Canticle,” which can be heard in the feature film The Tree of Life.

Artistic director of Cappella Romana, Dr. Alexander Lingas, founded the ensemble in 1991. He is a fellow at the University of Oxford’s European Humanities Research Center and a senior lecturer in Music at City University London.

This performance of Orthodox ancient and modern music will be led by singer, chorus master, conductor, and composer Adam Steele.
