To the glory of St John Paul II

GIUSEPPE PENNISI samples The Vatican's
recent festival of sacred music and art

 

Every year in October / November, a major festival of sacred music and art is held in the Vatican and in some of the Holy Basilicas of Rome. This year the Festival Internazionale di Musica e Arte Sacra (nine concerts between 28 October and 4 November 2015) was dedicated to St John Paul II, at the tenth anniversary of his death. This important festival is mostly financed through 'crowd funding', which is why it is compacted into a very few days, even though it involves some six hundred artists, all of very high standard. This allows the many sponsors from all over the world to visit Rome and enjoy the whole festival...
