Celebrating the 450th Anniversary of the composer’s birth, the acclaimed vocal ensemble Armonico Consort perform Monteverdi’s Vespers, a breathtaking musical kaleidoscope by candlelight at the beautifully atmospheric St Wilfrid’s Church. The piece is a dazzling demonstration of the great Italian composer’s genius.
This Baroque masterpiece was widely considered to be one of the most ground-breaking
works of its time and to this day is enjoyed by audiences across the globe. Packed full
of astounding melodies, harmonies and rhythms, to not only survive over 400 years but
remain so popular is a testament to the music and its brilliance.
“Monteverdi embraced the infinite, and crafted a masterpiece outside of time,
for all time.” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer
