Biography

From Marco Frisina’s Web Page.

Marco Frisina was born in Rome on December 16th 1954. He got a diploma in Composition in 1979 at “Santa Cecilia”’s Conservatoire, and he also took an Arts degree at “La Sapienza” University in Rome in 1983. He entered the Roman Seminary in 1978, studying theology at the Gregorian University, and after taking holy orders he specialized in Holy Scriptures at the Biblical Pontifical Institute

He has been the chapel-master of the Musical Lateran Chapel since 1985. In those years, more precisely in 1984, he thought of creating a choir to animate the liturgies. The Rome Diocese’s choir was born exactly in this way, spontaneously, as it is a group of no professional young people, who wants to follow together a spiritual and cultural path. The Rome Diocese’s Orchestra was then born to accompany the choir’s musical activity.

In 1991 he began his cooperation with RAI R.T.I. on an international project called “Bibbia” (Bible), both as biblical consultant and composer of the soundtracks of the first five films. He got two nominations for the Cable Ace Award in USA in 1994 for “Abramo” and “Giacobbe”, and he won this award in 1995 for “Giuseppe”.

His production of liturgical songs is very wide: over a 120 have been published, and loads of them are known both in Italy and abroad.

He composed and played for Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI many oratories.

He wrote many symphonic and chamber-music compositions, and he took part in many musical festivals with his orchestra and his two choirs.
