Monteverdi 1610 Vespers

To launch our 2023/24 season, I Fagiolini and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble join forces for Monteverdi’s spectacular albeit rarely performed 1610 Vespers. As Robert Hollingworth of I Fagiolini writes, ‘after many years, we return to this iconic, if sometimes misunderstood work, with a truly stellar line-up of performers dipped in the Monteverdi cauldron when young. Much of the glory of the Vespers’ psalm settings is in their detail, too often lost in the vast acoustics of cathedrals. Monteverdi even suggests the more intimate “chapels or chambers of princes” for the publication’s motets. Experience the music in the acoustic clarity of the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall – up to date with the latest research – as I Fagiolini and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble offer an intimate guide to this defining work.'
