Gregorio Allegri

1582 - February 7, 1652
composed during the Baroque period
Born in 1582, Gregorio Allegri, an Italian priest, singer, and composer in the tradition of the stile antico, is primarily known for his Miserere, a nine-part setting of Psalm 51. He spent much of his life working in Roman churches, joining the papal choir in 1629 and eventually becoming its choirmaster. According to a legend, Mozart wrote out the full score of this work after hearing it only once, thus effectively circumnavigating the rule that prohibited anyone from removing any parts of the score from the Sistine Chapel, where it was guarded. During the Romantic period, when composers and literary figures embraced the ideals of the stile antico, Allegri's Miserere was much admired. Allegri's other works include motets and instrumental concertini. He died in 1652. ~ Zoran Minderovic, Rovi

I listen to this while praying the rosary , sometimes I drift off to sleep for just a few moments, but the peace I feel when I awaken is something I've never felt before. Truely a mystery of faith & music. Somethings you just don't question!

There is another version of this by the Tallis Scholars that is gorgeous, too. The ethereal high soprano voice really sounds like a message from another world.

When giving blood and passing out you experienced nothing but an intense delusion. It's beautiful music but come on, don't be crazy

While attempting to give blood several years ago, I passed out cold. When I came to, music very similar to this was in my head just as real as being at a live concert. I do believe in a connection between this music and the spiritual world/hereaf t e r as others here have noted.

Magnificent. I'm not a religious person, but this reaches to me, and intensifies any spiritual connection I have. This is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard.

Even as an avowed Atheist, I marvel at the otherworldly beauty of Miserere. Allegri is truly one of the unknown masters.

I heard this song and found gooseflesh forming all over my arms and legs, and then I noticed a tear running down my cheek. How profound.

I recently heard this piece performed by the Christ Church Cathdral (Oxford) choir on their tour in the US. To see the faces of the men and young boys while singing the Miserere made the experience so profound.

Couldn't place where I'd heard this before. Previous life? How bout the background music for Sid Mier's Civilation 4.

This song is very amazing. I think that not enough people have an appreciation of Renaissance and chamber music. This music is such an important part history. This song could very well be one of the finest pieces of Renaissance music!
