listing vespers

Monteverdi’s spectacular masterpiece of 1610 is the most lavish of all the music that this peerless genius wrote for the church in early 17th century Venice. Nothing composed before Bach can rival it for sonic grandeur, but there is intimacy too in Monteverdi’s brilliantly imaginative use of solo voices and instruments. With a starry vocal line-up, joined by the virtuoso players of Dunedin Consort and His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, join us for what promises to be an unmissable event.
