500 years ago this year, one of the most monumental artistic achievements the earth has ever seen was begun as Michelangelo began to paint the now iconic ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Remarkably Michelangelo was born in the same year as work on the Sistine Chapel was begun: 1475, he was 8 when it was completed and 33 when he began the task of painting it's ceiling. It was to take 4 years to complete. Lucie Skeaping traces the lives of the great artist and the chapel through music, examining this historic event in more detail.
