Four hundred years after they were written, Monteverdi’s Vespers of the Blessed Virgin continue to serve up a rich and varied musical feast.
Thought by some to have been composed as an audition piece to help Monteverdi secure a more prestigious job, the work is renowned for its beautiful vocal lines and stunning virtuoso passages, surprising and delighting with frequent changes of mood, rhythm and musical form.
Top soloists join Crouch End Festival Chorus and The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble to bring this thrilling work to St John’s Smith Square.
