Sistine Chapel Choir (Ватикан)

    The Sistine Chapel Choir, as it is generally called in English, or properly the Coro della Cappella Musicale Pontificia in Italian, is one of the oldest choirs in the world, having been formally active since 1471. Based in Vatican City, it normally comprises twenty men (tenors and basses) and thirty boys (sopranos and altos), the latter receiving free tuition.
