Description

The origins of the centuries-old Academy of Santa Cecilia are linked to the practice of choral singing: in the second half of the 16th century, some Chapel Masters and Cantors met in association, electing Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina as President and de facto founding the Academy.

Only from the end of the nineteenth century did the Choir of the National Academy of Santa Cecilia begin to take on a stable structure and participate in the performances of polyphonic music and the great symphonic-vocal repertoire.
