The Shrine of Ss. Peter and Paul, Cumberland, MD

Carissimi, the most famous Roman composer in the middle of the 17th century, produced both chamber music for the self-exiled Queen Cristina and the Collegio Germanico, a school for Catholic priests and cantors there in Rome. The well-known musicians and composers who were trained or employed at the Collegio included Victoria in the sixteenth century and Giovanni Sances in the seventeenth. The attached church of Sant’Apollinare saw the premieres of several of Carissimi’s oratorios, including his famous Jonah and the Whale.
