A Year’s Support for Renaissance Music at the Parish of Santissima Trinita Dei Pellegrini, Rome

Project location: ITALY, Rome
Project start date: June 2012 - Project end date: December 2012
Project number: 2012-036
Beneficiary: Parrocchia Personale della SS. Trinità dei Pellegrini

 

The parish of Santissima Trinità every week features polyphonic music from the sixteenth and seventeenth century during its Sunday liturgies. The splendid Mass settings of major composers such as Palestrina, Victoria and Byrd, as well as under- appreciated artists such as Hasler and Guerrero form a regular part of the program for liturgical music at the Church.
This represents a significant contribution to the musical life of Rome, very much in line with the cultural philosophy of Benedict the Sixteenth. It constitutes something of a present day renaissance in the musical life of the Roman Church which, in turn, is influencing the Church on a world scale to follow the high standards of our Roman prototype. The musical life at the Trinita is setting an example to parishes and churches all over the catholic world principally by means of the close coverage we receive on numerous websites, magazines and other coverage This is in line with the Nando Peretti Foundation's goals in the sphere of the conservation of serious music. At the Trinita we are encouraging artists in the performance of an important musical heritage. We are raising public awareness and fostering the general public's appreciation of the West's musical heritage and tradition.

This project, which received a grant from the Nando Peretti Foundation, addresses the problem of retrieving the cultural heritage of Roman choral music. This challenge cannot be met simply by performing sacred music as concert pieces. Rather, the works of the great masters must be executed within the context for which they were created. This course of action has already inspired several musical events in Rome, sponsored by the Nando Peretti Foundation, which have been very well received by a large public.

The project has already started in JANUARY 2012, and will be completed by December 2012.
