To those already familiar with Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, this stunning work needs no introduction.  To those who have yet to experience it, it can literally be described as a masterpiece in the original sense of a display of all the best that a craftsman, in this case a composer, had to offer.

Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) was already established as a madrigal and opera composer when in 1610 he published the Vespers for the Blessed Virgin, a sacred work on a scale not attempted before.  It showcased all the skill in setting words he had developed in his madrigals and a great variety of approaches for voices and instruments in the various movements. 

Come and join us for a wonderful performance of a unique work that is at once both deeply spiritual yet also extraordinarily theatrical.

There will be a pre-concert discussion at 7pm featuring John Gibbons (SACC), Robert Hollingworth (I Fagiolini) and Gawain Glenton (ECSE).
