Fall-of-Constantinople_CappellaRomana

The Utrecht Early Music Festival, the most important event of its kind in the world, presents Cappella Romana with the program “The Fall of Constantinople.” Join the ensemble on Labor Day weekend just before its European tour as it explores the musical legacy of the ancient civilization of Byzantium—with majestic ceremonies for the cathedral of Hagia Sophia, triumphant assertions of superiority by Westerners, and fervent prayers for the healing of political and religious divisions.
