Santa Maria in Cosmedin

Schola Cantorum
The schola cantorum (choir) is a precious mediaeval survival, being an enclosure for the singers of the liturgy; there is another at San Clemente. The floor level is one step higher than the nave, and the floor itself is also of Cosmatesque work of greater intricacy than that of the nave.
