The Miserere, in particular, sung on three evenings at the office of Le Tenebre, has long been esteemed one of the finest of performances; but no one can imagine the effect produced by the perfect union of the finest voices, proceeding from concealed performers, in such a place, nearly in darkness, with all the imposing circumstances with which it is accompanied, but those who have heard it. Nothing can be more affecting or sublime. At that time, the first singer was Cristoferi, no longer a young man, but still possessing a beautiful voice.
