Vatican premiere of Sir James MacMillan’s Stabat mater in the Sistine Chapel
On 22 April 2018, audiences around the world watched the performance of James MacMillan’s Stabat mater from the Sistine Chapel. The concert was a rare honour, bestowed on the Genesis Foundation, as few performances are given in the Sistine Chapel and even fewer are given by ensembles not based in the Vatican. It was the first ever concert to be live-streamed from the Sistine Chapel and The Sixteen became the first professional British choir to sing there in over 20 years.
