Monteverdi: Vespro della Beata Vergine, 1610
with Yorkshire Baroque Soloists
and His Majesty's Sagbutts & Cornetts
Tickets £25 (£23)
Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers setting is a masterpiece of seventeenth century music, characterised by varied sonorities in its vocal and instrumental writing. We are excited to present Monteverdi’s masterpiece in its most festive version. Monteverdi’s score brings vibrant rhythms and imaginative originality, from the splendour of its grand choruses to the beauty of its solo movements. For this performance we are joined by both Yorkshire Baroque Soloists, and His Majesty’s Sagbutts & Cornetts to provide the unique orchestral and wind colour of Monteverdi’s forces.
