“The concert took place in the framework of cooperation between the Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. Participants performed works by Italian and Russian composers such as Giovanni Palestrina and Sergey Rakhmaninov,” Interfax-Religion was told by the Moscow Synodal Choir.

The choir is touring Italy on December 10-13.

Last weekend the choir attended the nightlong vigil and Liturgy in the Russian St. Catherine’s Church in Rome. Now it is heading for Bari where it will perform on December 12 on the Day of St. Nicholas. It is in Bari where the relics of the saint highly cherished in Russia rest.

The Moscow Synodal Choir will also take part in the “Russia and Italy through the centuries” festival in Naples.
