Worthian directs a special music project

Members of the Worth community, past and present, will be interested to watch this fascinating short film about the work of Mark Spyropoulos, old boy of Worth and member of the Sistine Chapel Choir, to bring to life previously unheard sacred music from the Medici period of Florentine history.

Since 2018, the Music Program at the Medici Archive Project in Florence has been working to research, document, perform and publish hitherto unknown sacred works from 16th century Florence during the time of the Medici grand dukes.

Earlier this month, in London's famous St Augustine's Church, Kilburn, Vox Medicea, a vocal ensemble comprised of 14 specialist singers directed by former Worth student Mark Spyropoulos (Director of the Music Program) came together to record, for the first time in over 400 years, a selection of works uncovered by the Medici Archive Project Music Program.
