The beautiful voices of this small a cappella group were magnified in Santa Maria Concezione. Baroque churches can be overwhelming, but this church provided both a dramatic backdrop and great acoustics. It was a perfect setting for their 15th-17th century repertoire. The music was the primary attraction for me, but the visit following the concert to museum of the Capuchins and the Capuchin crypt was also illuminating. :-) Caravaggio’s St. Francis was a highlight, Thank you Paolo and friends!

I thought I was just there for a small concert, and didn't expect the guided tour in a small group. It was well done, and made the experience so much better! The singers were wonderful, and the music quite appropriate for the venue.

I highly recommend the experience to anyone who is interested in history and music, or to anyone who is just curious by nature! Our guides were both knowledgeable and professional, and did a very good job explaining the history of the Capuchin order and the beliefs. Music was well chosen and acoustics were great! Bravissimo!

Concerto e non mi aspettavo la visita guidata in un piccolo gruppo. E stato molto ben fatto e ha reso l'esperienza molto migliore!

Consiglio vivamente l'esperienza a chiunquie sia interessato alla storia e alla musica, or chunque sia solo.

Great combination of guided tour through the Capuchin Crypts and Museum with Caravaggio of St Francis, with wonderful concert by the Schola Romana singers. Music by the most famous composers of the time, including Palestrina, transparently performed by this quartet, in the lovely St Maria Immacolata church: everything falls into place. The quietly sung Sicut servus was particularly moving.

This was perhaps the most unique experience we had during our trip to Italy. The museum is small but contains interesting items to see including a beautiful painting that may be a Caravaggio. The ossuary was simply astounding. To see human bones arranged in artful designs and even crafted into chandeliers will set your mind to meditate on the meaning of life and death. It calls to mind the old Latin saying "ars longa, vita brevis" - art is long, life is short. As if to emphasize that point, the tour of the crypt is followed by an excellent performance of Renaissance and baroque sacred music by the Schola Romana Ensemble. I am a professional musician who specializes in early music. The concert is worth the price of entrance. This group is fantastic. If you want to do something a little different without all of the crowds of tourists, I highly recommend this experience.

Due to the rainy forcast I booked the visit of the crypts. Our guide Monika was very nice and she knows a lot, unfortunately we were quite big group so it was not easy to hear and move around. Esspecilay in the crypts. It woild be nice to have a few more moments also in the museum since there is an interesting exposition. The concert was nice and the ambient made it even more special.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome.
The tour guide was very informative & although the museum was small there was plenty of interesting things to see. The crypts were astounding ! It may sound morbid but the way the human bones were arranged & even designed into the chandeliers was a sight to be seen ! The church is beautiful & the concert after was excellent & worth the price of the ticket. The singing was beautiful & took this excursion from good to fabulous. I would highly recommend this experience.

Have been to the Cappuchin Crypt previously,and it's definitely worth a visit, but the music and musicians of the concert were worth the price of the ticket on its own. Beautiful 15th and 16th century music expertly rendered in a glorious acoustic.

I scheduled this incredible evening for my last night in Rome, which ended up being my favorite part of the trip! After touring Italy for nearly three weeks, attending concerts in Cremona's Museo del Violino and the opera at La Scala in Milan, this is the evening that stands out as unforgettable. The tour of the church and crypts provided the perfect context for the sacred vocal music shared by Roma Opera Omnia. The combination of tour, concert and dinner at Terrazza Borromini was spectacular! The brief comments about each composer during the concert was just enough information to intrigue and delight, but not overwhelm. Dinner at Palazzo Pamphilj was enchanting, truly! Enjoying a view of the Piazza Novana at night during dinner is not to be missed. Thank you Roma Opera Omnia for a night like no other!

Thank you! It's so nice to hear that you've enjoyed our event the most, especially that the concerts you've attended in other cities sounds great as well. And we agree, the view of Piazza Navona at night is amazing :)
