The Miserere of Gregorio Allegri is one of the best-loved pieces of choral music in the world - but its textual history is a headache! This edition presents the piece we know as "Allegir's Miserere" in two versions (one now attributed chiefly to Tommaso Bai), as it is believed to have been sung in the Sistine Chapel betwee ca. 1750-1900, replete with ornamentation and textual commentary.
