San Francisco Renaissance Voices also has a great program coming up (yes, it's chorus-concert season!):

The All Allegri Concert - March 28, 29 & April 5

Join us for this concert featuring the music of one of the most popular composers of the Late Renaissance, Gregorio Allegri (1582-1652). For contemporary audiences, Allegri is primarily known for his legendary Miserere but during his life time he was a prolific composer writing numerous masses, motets and other works. In addition to the Miserere, other music he composed for use by the Vatican during Holy Week including his Missa che fa oggi il mio sole, a parody mass based on the madrigal of the same name by Luca Marenzio, his Lamentations of Jeremiah and several motets will be performed.
